Note: This drawing is now closed. There are a lot of things I love about The Macaroon Bible by Dan Cohen, founder of Danny Macaroons. The biggest thing is that macaroons are naturally gluten-free. Another awesome thing is that they’re so simple to make. Lastly, I totally love that the basic recipe in the book for making coconut macaroons is so easily adaptable. I’ve been baking a lot from the book over the past year while we were getting it ready for publication, and you almost can’t go wrong with these recipes. If you feel like adding nuts, it’s no problem. Feel like dipping them in chocolate? That’s easy too. So when my girlfriend and I decided to bake up a batch of macaroons the other day, we couldn’t quite agree on which recipe to try. The solution was easy — start with one of Dan’s great recipes and then tweak it a bit. The result were these super-moist and oh-so-yummy Maple-Bourbon-Pecan Macaroons. I think Dan would approve.
If you happen to be still reading this, you can simply post a comment below, and you will be added into a drawing to possibly win a copy of the book. I will be choosing one winner (US and Canada residents only, please) on Friday, October 11th at midnight. Good luck!
