Making coconut macaroons at home isn't hard, and the results are sure to impress. Whether you celebrate Passover or not, these are the cookies of the season. We went to Breads Bakery in Union Square to see how it's done.
Pastry chef Rinat Tzadok came to NYC with owner of Breads Bakery Uri Scheft, who also runs the famous Lehamim Bakery in Tel Aviv. Tzadok says in Israel, macaroons are only available during Passover.
This recipe is traditional, but also includes just a touch of apricot jam, which keeps the macaroons moist.
Check out the recipe and a video of Tzadok making macaroons!
