    I literally just wrote a case study on HP so I feel very connected to those googly eyes.
    I’ve been in a cherry mood lately. Too bad they are highly out of season, I’ll have to follow your route to go with the dried variety.

  2. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    Ohhh… I’ve been on a huge cherry kick lately. Can you pass me a dozen? 🙂

  3. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    Mmmmm this looks sooooooooooo good!!! I’ve really been craving something like macaroons lately. And you are sooo cute and crazy and funny! Googly eyes are watchin’ ya (meet the parents “I’m watching you” motion)

    These photos make me DROOL. Nuff said 😉

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    How is it that you can make a rough patch sound so adorable? 🙂 And psst for the next post I’m picturing pics of you doing a fashion post wearing mopeypants, stressjackets, and whimpershoes! 😛

    1. Emma

      i second that!

  6. Kath Lockett

    …I’d add some choc bits and they’d equal perfection. Could you use cranberries instead of cherries? (they’re available here and, compared to pretty well everything else, are reasonably priced).

    YUM! I love macaroons. Even more – shhhhhhh! – than macarons. How great are dried sour cherries? I buy these Iranian ones from the Victoria Market and put them into everything: biscotti, salads, stuffings. But now I want macarOONs. x

  8. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    You are delightful 🙂 And I’m sure your friends know it and are extraordinarily grateful for you in their lives! Especially so when you provide macaroons such as these. Between you and me, though, I think it would be a tie between these and the Googly Eyes when it comes to things that would cheer me up 😀

    ok, three things:
    1) mopeypants, stressjackets, and/or whimpershoes – some of your best work, right there. love it!
    2) bravo for doing spin class. I never have as I’m slightly terrified of it (and the thought of not making it past 5 minutes – if they do an express 5 minute class, I’m there)
    3) these look lovely, how nice of you!

    You are a goddess among women and a star among rocks and a spork among not-so-multifaceted cutlery. And i love you madly for it 🙂

  11. Three-Cookies

    Interesting future post – BBC is on stand-by:) Its been a while since I had choc macaroons. Now I am craving

  12. Johanna GGG

    No no – eggy is a true fear because no one wants any baking that is too eggy (maybe that is just me too).

    And these look delicious and cheering and they make me want some dried cherries just appear in my pantry!

  13. Errign

    I want a poem! 🙂 Hahaha.

    I like to make macaroons and I’ve found that when I’ve used a recipe that seems dry, pushing them into a tablespoon measure creates a nice shape 🙂

  14. Winston

    Awww shucks. That’s really thoughtful of you to bake a batch of macaroons for your friend. I wish my friends baked me a batch of macaroons. I need to borrow that whimpershoes from you soon. Or… I should just give up and make a batch for myself. Hrmmm… =]

  15. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I’ll take the macaroons, plz. WITH googly eyes.

    (PS – please tell me you’ve seen this!)

  16. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    What a gorgeous friend you are! I’m sure you made them all feel much, much better.

  17. Emma

    Holy crapparoo, soul sister. I was going to make macaroons over the weekend. I wandered about the house, in between vast wanderless stretches spent watching the remaining 24 episodes of Make it or Break it that I succumbed to (I shock and awe even myself sometimes). In these wandering hours, I thought about my extreme love for macaroons. I was planning to make mine with mango.

    Then when I finally stopped wandering and saved up enough energy to open the fridge door – alas, there were no eggs. And having used all of my energy opening the fridge, walking the long eggless walk of shame to the grocery store was hella out of the question.

    But this eve I added eggs and a mango to my possession and it. will. happen. I will be whimpershoes no more.


  18. Nic@diningwithastud

    LOL at the googley eyes. That totally would have made my day. Actually, eating macaroons while looking at googley eyes = perfect day!

  19. Michelle @ Oats n' Bows

    My mom would love these!! Totally bookmarking it!

  20. whisperinggums

    Now these look perfect … did the original recipe not say to whisk?

  21. chocolatesuze

    aww you’re such a sweet friend im sure they felt much better and much lols at the googley eyes!

  22. ck

    I think all of our lives (yes, even us, your blog world friends on various sides of numerous different divides) are enriched because you are in it. Poet laureate or not. p.s. don’t give up your day job just yet. Or, at least not for poetry 😉

  23. Lou

    Aren’t you just the sweetest thing? Perhaps even more so than these delicious looking morsels. I’m off to get googly eyes for my laptop 🙂 googly is fun to say

  24. whisperinggums

    Sure would …

  25. Caitlin @ Vegetarian in the City

    hahahaha i love the idea of putting googly eyes on a coworker’s desk. brilliant!!

    i would love to add some cocoa to this batter to make it even more chocolate y 🙂

  26. Rach

    Totally dig the googly eyes, haha! And those macaroons look scrumptious!

  27. Katy

    I always forget that there’s also oooooon macaroons! I’ve never actually eaten one, but these look tasty-as 🙂

  28. Katy

    I hadn’t either! I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I once proofread a recipe for macarons and changed it to ‘macaroons’ because I had no idea there were two different spellings :/

  29. hungryandfrozen

    Hannah, this recipe sounds both wonderful and wonderfully easy (double wonder!) and just the thing to chase away the whimpershoes with. Presumably while wearing a way snazzier pair of shoes. Where was I? Oh yeah. Having donned the whimpershoes more than once lately it’s at least good to know their real name, which means they can’t be as harmful anymore because I’ll giggle every time I say “whimpershoes” (and yes, that’s three giggles in this one comment for me)

  30. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Aww, so great! I’ve bookmarked these and will make them for my dad (he loves coconut macaroons). 🙂
