The summer has been perfect this year! Day after day of warm sunshine and good friends has made it challenging to stay home and felt. Although I just got the baking bug again, and have decided to take on the parisian macaron. I tried two recipes. This almond one was delicious, but obviously never grew "feet," so it was just a nice cookie sandwich.
The next chocolate recipe was a bit better. I powdered the almond flour with the powdered sugar, and also double panned so the bottoms would not cook so fast. Unfortunately I have theoven from hell, and the temperature jumped from 375 to 500 and freaked the poor cookies to crackly disaster. I did salvage a few, but the feet lifted, but then spread. Boo.
I will try again next weekend!
