Vegan Pulverized Macaroons

I needed some Pulverized Macaroons for the Poires au Gratin recipe...and I searched all through Julia's book for a recipe to make the Macaroons...

...she mentions Macaroons several times and there are recipes that require them...but she never tells you how to make them...

...but I made some...and I'll post soon over at Affectioknit...it won't belong here as there is no recipe for the count...HA!...I'll come back and update this post with a link when I do...

Affectioknit's Vegan Coconut Macaroons

...basically...Julia says that Pulverized Macaroons are a good substitute for pralin...
...you just break up your Macaroons into small pieces and bake them at 200° for about an hour...until they are dry and brown...
...then you grind them up with a meat grinder...which I actually own...although I've never ground meat with it...we use it to make my Mom's Chow-Chow recipe...
...so you just load up the hopper...
...and crank the handle...Julia also says you can use a blender or a mortar...
...they smell really good...and the vegan macaroons turned out perfectly in the end...

Substitutions: None really specifically for this recipe...of course there were for the Macaroons themselves...

  1. I'm sure this was very tasty, but I'm pretty sure Julia was referring to crushed-up French macarons. :)
