I absolutely love macarons and I love how this picture turned out. Two macarons on honeymoon. In Cannes, I was staying near a little patisserie and it was heaven. Each morning, I would eatone almond croissant, one pain au chocolate, and one macaron (or maybe two) and once I even had another patastry that looked like a giant potato chip, but it was pastry and so light with almonds on top. Does anyone know what it is called? It was pure delightful. Someone should write a French pastry cookbook.
I was always intrigued by macarons - what do those little colorful cake/cookies taste like? Well, they're crunchy on the outside and moist on the outside and regardless of color, I think they taste like almond.
I've been trying to find the best macaron recipe for all of my Extremely Crafty Chums and found these. If anyone has another good macaron recipe, I would be really grateful if you could leave a link in the comments section. Merci beaucoup!
Strawberry (but recipe uses jam, so not sure about this one)
Aha! read on the blog vine this is the best recipe at A La Cuisine. Two flavours are listed - Caramel-Fleur de Sel Macarons and Toasted Sesame Macarons. Don't they sound yummy?
If you try any of the recipes, let me know how they turn out. I'll be making some this weekend.
