'danny macaroons' on Serious Eats
Those golden macaroons behind the glass cases at coffeeshops like Gimme! Coffee, Irving Farm, and McNally Jackson Books? They all come from Danny Macaroons, and there are many reasons to love these gems.
Danny Macaroons has its roots in a Passover years ago, when Danny Cohen asked his mother why they never had macaroons around for the holiday and she suggested that he make them himself. They were a big hit with his friends and family, but he decided not to make them again the next year. "I didn't really want to be the guy who always brought the macaroons," Cohen explains. But everyone had been expecting them and Cohen says he was "yelled at, practically banished."
