Pistachio Dried Cherry Macaroons

This is what I learned this weekend. Do not create a raw food recipe that you plan to shoot, invite 10 people over and have to leave the room for a bit. They will find it in your refrigerator, like heat seeking missiles, and devour it before you get the photographs done! Which, I take to mean, they loved these!



A lot of my raw food recipes are born simply from the ingredients that I see when I open the cupboard. I had a bag of pistachios left over from another recipe and dried cherries. The two go beautifully together so I put together these macaroons!

We also had a winner for yesterday’s contest.  I used something called a knobbed rolling pin. Stacy L guessed if first and got the book! This is my knobbed rolling pin:

    Fabulous recipe! Loved the taste! Only suggestion I would make is to halve the ganache. I ended up with more than double what I needed. Of course I can easily find something to pour it on!

    Oh my,
    these are delicious, truly good, my new favorite dessert! I substituted Carob for the cacao and it was a wonderful taste sensation. I divided my batch in half and put some in the freezer to set… so I could eat them quicker… placed the other half in the dehydrator and will see how they come out tomorrow.

    Thank you for another rawmazing treat!!

    Made these yesterday and they are beyond description! Whoa! So good! And that’s even without the ganache (couldn’t wait to make it hahaha).

    What a delicious sounding mix of ingredients, Susan! I’m new to your site & raw food preparation in general – where do you find dehydrator screens?

    Is there any way to make these without the coconut and coconut oil? I hate coconut… but I do adore pistachios and cherries. In fact, I just bought a 4# box of dried cherries from Amazon that I got earlier this week, and wanted to find some new recipes to try!

      The coconut and coconut oil are main ingredients in this recipe. Without doing a completely different recipe, I wouldn’t have a clue.
