After a long time away from making macarons, I baked some on Saturday. I decided to make vanilla shells and just use different-flavored fillings: root beer, Dalgona coffee, and pomegranate. They didn't turn out great, but at least they were edible!
When your newest teenager requests a peanut butter cake for his birthday, you go overboard and make a peanut butter cake with peanut butter and chocolate frosting, Reese's peanut butter cups, peanut butter ice cream, and chocolate magic shell!
Though it does involve some stovetop work, this dessert doesn't heat up the kitchen. The pomegranate jelly has a tart flavor that balances well with the sweetness of the creamy panna cotta.
