Last night I put all of my extra down time to good use, by baking up a batch of coconut macaroons to give the dancers as a little congratulatory treat in honor of the opening of Sleeping Beauty tonight. The little confections were sticky, fragrant and fun to make, and the end result yielded a pile of perfectly golden brown, crisp, mini-domes of sweet coconut goodness. To add an extra level of decadence, I decided to half-dip the airy little cookies in chocolate. Is your mouth watering yet?
So, my fellow dancers, my colleagues, my friends, my ballet family- Merde, and bon appétit!
