First off don't forget about the fabulous giveaway going on in my last post!!! Go enter now! You have until midnight on June 5th to enter :)
Secondly, I know it's saturday and I never post on the weekends... but this recipe had a deadline!! And I was determined to meet it!
OK now onto the post! I've been a cookie carnival slacker as of late... but not this month!! I made it with 1 whole day to spare! Kate of The Clean Plate Club hosts it each month and for May she picked Hazelnut Macaroon sandwich cookies. You can download the PDF recipe on her blog here.
Want to know a shocker? I followed the cookie part of the directions!! I know I know... pretty crazy... since you know me and messing with recipes!
Oh, important side note, USE the parchment paper like the recipe tells you, silicon baking mats... they don't work as well... whoops! Lesson learned :)
I did however change the filling... You see I had just made my homemade nutella... how could I NOT use it for the filling? Read about the seriously easy recipe here.
If you make these I HIGHLY recommend making the nutella like filling instead of the plain chocolate ganache... seriously fantastic... I am not lying... no really... go make them now :D
OH and don't try to make these by hand... a kitchen aid or other type of mixer is your best friend... because in order to get stiff peaks...
you need some kitchen aid love :D Unless you want to have some beastly huge muscle arms by the end of making these... in that case, hand beat away!!
Another important note... these are super light, which makes them easy to just pop in your mouth and chow a ton without realizing it... not that I did that or anything....
OK off to catch our plane to DC!! Looking forward to seeing the family, relaxing, chowing, and exploring DC!
