OMG...I have no recipe but I love BEARCLAWS!!

One of my favorite things ever....I miss them even more than dounts or any other pastry type thing. I would love to have a bearclaw again someday. Well actually....I'd like to have several bearclaws!. :D

I get to *look* at them everyday at work....torture. :(

I miss Pepperidge Farm White Coconut Cake. Oh man, my partner and I used to get those, let them thaw, grab two forks and meet in the middle. All while standing at the counter. Sigh...the good ole days. But we're all healthier now - let's remember that fact!

I'm not sure this is like the pepperidge farm cake but Annalise Roberts has a coconut layer cake in her cookbook. I haven't tried it because I'm the only one in my family who likes coconut.

Nini

you need to contact Annalise & have her work on bear claws for you... I never liked them . Don't know why I alway ate all the other pastries..Annalise is very helpful & friendly... Love that book

my dad's favorite cake has always been the Pepperidge Farm's coconut cake, yummy... Oh man if I could find a recipe for him for that he'd be so happy! (he's gluten-free now too)

I love that coconut cake, too. It reminds me of my mother in law's house.

Too bad I've become intolerant to coconut.....

I don't know about your bear claws but our bears have sharp claws. But the edible type up here are like a cookie with whipping cream in between the two pieces and chocolate on the outside over the tips. So, I bet we can use a gluten-free shortbread recipe for them or any other type of gluten-free cookie recipe.

Oh thank you mamaw!!!!!

The bearclaws I'm craving are like donuts only a little denser, and coated with a maple syrup kinda glaze sometimes nuts as well, And they are shaped like a paw... the donut shop I used to walk to when I was a kid had these every saturday morning and it was like the best thing in the world
