Chocolate Coconut French Macarons

I've long since had a fond affection for Almond Joy candy bars. I rank the almond-coconut-chocolate combination right up there with peanut butter and jelly. I generally don't let myself buy candy bars anymore because I will eat them all embarrassingly quickly. So, instead of the store-bought, who-knows-what-they're-filled-with candy bars, I decided to incorporate these lovely flavors into sweet, airy French macaron cookies that I could share . . . not hoard all for myself.

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

Guys . . . I did it: I made gluten-free cinnamon rolls that rival the wheat-filled ones we've been longing for as we press our noses against pastry cases and sigh because we must deprive ourselves. No longer, my friends. Indulge away.

Every few months or so I become so enraptured with a pastry that I have had trouble making gluten-free that I can hardly think of anything else. So I read, and I convert, and I seethe in anger and determination until I get it right. I mean, I have been given the gift of and passion for being able to make delicious gluten-free baked goods, I owe it to myself (and to you guys!) to try until I succeed!
