recipe: macarons!

November 30, 2010

Labeled:

I have always been interested in making macarons, the beautiful and tasty French cookies! I made coconut macaroons last year which perhaps got me thinking about the other dessert with the similar name. My Dad got me this awesome book called I Heart Macaroons which breaks the recipes down step by step with illustrations. SO helpful because it can get very confusing. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a copy of it online but if you’re interested I’d definitely recommend the book..it would be a great stocking stuffer since it’s so thin! I decided to make my life a little easier by going with the basic vanilla macaron batter {as opposed to the macaroon batter with Italian Meringue}. I also stuck with chocolate ganache and caramel filling. Next time I’ll go for the macarons in pretty colors!

They were gooood! Even with all the sweets we had this weekend I’m still craving more!
