Macarons

Macarons

Macarons.

Sweet. Soft and crunchy. Gooey insides yet light as air. Heavenly bliss.

I thought: Why not try and bake macarons? You only live once. Plus, how hard can they be?

Well, kinda tricky I guess, but not all THAT hard. I invited my pretty friend, Petra, to come over for a baking adventure. And you know what? I think we did pretty well. We're determined to perfect and hone our macaron baking skills. Because sometimes you just need pretty cookies in your life.

Well, at least I do.

We baked three trays in all. Our first tray cracked and collapsed mostly. Our second, we switched things up a bit and had more success. Our third tray was picture perfect.

We baked a raspberry cookie and made a raspberry buttercream filling. Divine.

I searched the internets high and low for a recipe that I felt comfortable trying and landed on this one. It's excellent. The recipe worked out well for us and there are GREAT troubleshooting articles on the website. Brilliant!
