Is this even close, slyragz?


Ingredients

For the macaroons:


1/3 cup or 3 ounces pistachios


3/4 cup confectioners' sugar


2 large egg whites


1 tbsp sugar




For the buttercream:


1/4 cup or 2 ounces pistachios


1 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened


2 baking sheets, lined with parchment paper




Preparation


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Grind the pistachios in a food processor along with the confectioners' sugar (this stops them turning into an oily mess), until as fine as dust. Whisk the egg whites until fairly stiff, but not dry, sprinkle the sugar over and whisk until very stiff. Fold the whites into the pistachio-sugar dust, and combine gently. Pipe small rounds onto your lined baking sheet, using a plain 1/2-inch nozzle. Let them sit for about 10 minutes to form a skin. Then put in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes: they should be set, but not dried out.

Remove from the oven and let cool, still on their sheets, while you get on with the filling. This is simple work: grind the nuts and confectioners' sugar in the processoor as before; then cream the butter and continue creaming as you add the nut dust. Make sure you have a well-combined soft buttercream. Then simply sandwich the macaroons together.

I pulled that one from a google search, and it seems to be missing the almond/cherry flavor that you get with spumoni ice cream, which is what they really reminded me of.


God, I'm drooling.

Thanks for the help. Believe me, if---no, when I figure it out, I will definitely put it out here.

I might be stating the obvious, but did you try asking the folks at Mike's?

Maybe use the recipe I posted, adding a teaspoon or so of almond and cherry extract in the filling?

Please share if you figure it out.
Baking is a hobby of mine and I'd be intersted in trying these as a step up from my standard chocolate-dipped, coconut macaroons.

Slyragz,

I can't help with the recipe, but I have put out some enquiries on a couple of other message boards I contribute to. One of them is a cooking forum populated by both professional and amateur cooks. Here's a link to it for anyone who might have some cooking-related questions they're looking for answers to:

Had a nice Thanksgiving dinner last night. We didn't eat until after 7 because my new brother-in-law didn't get off work until 7. My sister brought her fantastic pepper salad, and she finally - finally - finally remembered to bring the recipe. So I thought I'd post it for you guys:



1 - 14oz can green beans (drained)
1 - 12oz can kernel corn (drained)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup each of any other colour bell pepper you would like
1 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup sliced green onion

Dressing:

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup salad oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix together and pour over vegetables. Refrigerate.

note:

If you double the vegetables, you don't need to double the dressing.

Went to a Kiwanis dinner last night. Catered and they had prepared this dish. I would have never thought to pair these spices with these veggies, but it was incredibly good.

So, of course, I walked back into the kitchen and coaxed the recipe from the caterer.

Spicy roasted veggies

4-5 carrots (peeled and diagonally cut into bite size chunks)
1 lb fresh green beans
palm-full of cumin
couple pinches of chili powder
kosher salt
splash or two of ev olive oil

parboil veggies. preheat oven to 325. drain veggies. toss veggies with olive oil and spices. roast about 20-30 minutes.

is that too easy or what?
