Raw Strawberry Macaroons from Ani’s Raw Food Desserts.
I’m making a bunch of recipes from Ani’s Raw Food Desserts this week to write up a review for Jae Steele’s blog. So far, just about everything has been Pretty Tasty. Strawberries are one of my favorite foods, so the smell and taste of these macaroons makes me all sorts of happy.
I also made some Almond Frangipane Kream this morning. This is my least favorite so far on account of the texture and bland flavor, but it still makes a bowl of Honeycrisp apple slices a little extra special (not that Honeycrisps need specialing up, mind you!). I’ll have to see if I can repurpose the cream somehow.
Last but not least, some Orange Fig Cookies, which are supposed to have lemon but I was out of lemons. These are extra decadent what with the cashew nuts and cashew butter in them, but the bit of fig sweetness and the hint of orange zest make them feel lighter. Yummy yum yum!
There will be a more overall review of the book as a whole on Domestic Affair, which I’ll point you to whenever it happens over the next couple months, but the general recommendation here is yes.
