Time to make the macarons!

March 18, 2008 at 2:31 pm | Posted in Dessert | 7 Comments

my inspiration this time was from la tartine gourmande and from tartelette.

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!!
