When I visited New York City last September, I went to a tiny pop-up macaron shop in Dylan’s Candy Bar called Dana’s Bakery. Dana’s is known for their colorful, unique macarons in fun flavors like Fruity Pebbles and Birthday Cake, and I was dying to try their Cookie Dough macaron.
But as fate would have it, they were sold out. And I was so bummed.
I mean, helllooooo – cookie dough macarons?! Genius! It combines two of my favorite things: delectably sweet chocolate chip cookie dough and crisp, airy and fabulous French macarons. What’s not to love?!
So after my mini letdown, I came home determined to make Cookie Dough Macarons at home. And thankfully, I succeeded because OMG. It was basically life-changing you guys. Sweet, crispy, airy, chewy and studded with miniature chocolate chips in nearly every bite… talk about amazing. And I didn’t need to rely on a pop-up bakery’s supply to get my fix… that’ll do, pig. That’ll do.
I’m sharing this Cookie Dough Macaron recipe over on Food Fanatic today where I’m there resident Cookie Dough Fanatic and post everything cookie dough related. It’s a pretty tasty job, but someone’s gotta do it and thank goodness that someone is me 🙂
