There are only four days left until Christmas, and I’ve just started my holiday baking! Normally I wouldn’t be super stressed, since I can whip up a batch of Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies in about 10 minutes, but this year in particular I’ve been baking for people with a lot of dietary restrictions. Yesterday I was meeting a friend who doesn’t eat gluten or dairy, and I could not for the life of me think of what to bake for her.
Macarons are obvious choice for the gluten free peeps, but how would I make a filling without dairy? I like to fill my macarons with swiss buttercream or some kind of ganache, both of which require copious amounts of dairy in the form of butter or heavy cream.
