1. Matcha Macarons with Baileys Original Irish Cream Buttercream Filling 

Amisha Gurbani (of The Jam Lab blog) combines drinks and dessert with her macarons sandwiched with a Baileys Original Irish Cream Buttercream Filling. The addition of earthy matcha powder gives a festive green color to the macaron shells without overpowering the taste.

The divine pairing of fresh Parmesan and rosemary strikes a perfect balance between the simple ingredients and deliciously complex flavors in this savory take on tradition.

Though fresh figs are delicious gems in their own right, there is much to be gained by baking with the dried form. We like to add them to fudgy brownies to impart an intense, caramel-like sweetness. Here, crystallized ginger and our Sour Beer Caramel add complementary spicy and tangy counter notes. 

Pistachio Babka

Use our classic Babka recipe and add our pistachio filling to bring some color and crunch to our favorite twisted and braided bread. Check out our new Babka Back Page column in our March/April 2018 Issue!

For milder beer flavor, brush hot beer doughnuts in melted butter and toss in a brown bag with lots of cinnamon sugar before topping with maple glaze.
