Sharing a Recipe: Coconut Macaroon Cookies

It is that time of year when everyone is baking christmas cookies! We wanted to share with you a recipe of one of our favorite christmas cookies. These are not only a pretty cookie they are delicious and make cookies trays extra special. We took a traditional coconut macaroon recipe and jazzed it up a bit with some coconut milk.

16 oz  Sweetened Shredded Coconut
10 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
4 oz Coconut Milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
2 extra-large egg white. at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Coating Chocolate

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Combine the coconut, condensed milk, coconut milk, and the extracts a in a large bowl. Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in an electric mixer(with whisk attachment) until they make medium- firm peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

Drop the batter on to sheet pans.  Here at The Cake Boutique we line ours with parchment paper. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and dip bottoms into melted chocolate- let dry and ENJOY!

Wedding Wednesday: Venetian Table

The Venetian table was a staple in Italian weddings as it was a Sicilian tradition called the "Venetian Hour". This was a dessert course that is offered after dinner is finished and the cake is cut. This dessert course typically offers pastries, fruit, cakes and coffee. Venetian table is an abundant  and lavish in both food and decorations.  Traditionally, the table consisted of desserts such as tiramisu, napoleons, cannoli, cheesecakes, fruit logs, and cream cakes. Over time chocolate fountains as well as, ice cream and other various stations focused on individual treats are also popular.  A Venetian table is another type of dessert buffet that appears at weddings and other social events. The presentation of sweets is too intended to be breathtaking in variety.

These are a great addition to a wedding as they add a climax to a delicious dinner. They provide a variety of sweets for your guest so there is something for everyone. It is a great way to incorporate both the grooms and brides favorites along with traditional cultural desserts from their own backgrounds.

All together this dessert table is both stunning and delicious!
