Who hasn’t been seduced by images of brightly colored Parisian macaroons? I mean, just look at this Google image search screenshot:
So dainty and pretty! I decided to give making them a try. I found the recipe on Martha Stewart, and it didn’t seem too difficult. Behold the results!
Not exactly Martha Stewart quality. The problem is that I picked up the wrong almonds at the store. We thought we’d give it a try anyway, but no… slivered almonds do not work the same as blanched almonds. Oh well… at least Peter liked them.
Now what to do with a huge batch of macaroon filling?
