making macarons

February 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

It’s no secret I love macarons.  I love sweet and I love almonds and so I don’t think there was ever any doubt that I would love macarons.  I’ve tried to make them before with some success.  However, recently, I have had terrible luck.  They almost always cracked.  If you’ve ever tried making these cookies, you know how fickle they are.  The recipes are deceptively simple and requires very few ingredients.  Yet, to get those perfect little “feet” and smooth top can be a frustrating experience.  So I’m happy to say that I’ve found a new favorite recipe, which, while still not perfect, seems to at least give me presentable macarons.  The site also contains lots of troubleshooting techniques.  My next goal will be to make different flavors such as earl grey and lavender!
