It isn't too late to bring home a special treat for Valentine's Day.
Last week I popped in to the Dolce Baking Company in the Prairie Village Shops and emerged with a big stupid grin on my face and a box filled with coconut macaroons. I claim to be indifferent to coconut, but lately nothing tastes better to me than this delicious cookie, and the macaroons I brought home from Dolce were the best I've had.
The case was filled with so many other delicious treats...I've had a moist and subtle orange almond cupcake there, with a fat swirl of cream cheese frosting that was really and truly good. I've also had the misfortune of choosing a s'mores brownie which looked good, but was strangely without flavor. The baklava was a hit with some of my fellow customers, and you can't go wrong with chocolate dipped strawberries. They have gorgeous cakes and creamy chocolate mousse, but if they have the macaroons, don't even think twice about picking up a few. They were moist and chewy and slightly crisp on top, with a perfect layer of chocolate on the bottom which brought it all together. Perfect sweets for your sweet.
