Time to make the macarons!March 18, 2008 at 2:31 pm | Posted in Dessert | 7 Comments
I bought a huge bag of almonds and made the flour, finally with a blender’s help…not from the elusive mortar and pestle that I thought would solve my dilemma.
I did the first batch of the chocolate/peanut butter macarons on Saturday and they are delicious but definitely a first try. Recipe courtesy of Food Network.
Sunday was a valiant success! A Raspberry (courtesy of McCormick Raspberry Extract) and Semi Sweet Chocolate Ganache version. UPDATE: And these babies are featured in couture cupcakes- mad for macarons challenge!!
Here is the full tupperware…
It is now almost empty and in my freezer.
Art! and Beautiful Pink Deliciousness!
and now for our further french artistic inspiration..thanks to Justice..who also blew our ear drums so badly we could not hear correctly for 2 days!
yay for french dj’s.
