French Macarons

Macarons for your Monday!cookies

I mentioned before that I tried a french macaron for the first time while I was in DC about a month ago.

The one I tried was pistachio flavored. It was amazing. I wondered why it took me so long to try a macaron.

I waited 23 years to try one, but I have a feeling that I will now eat macarons as often as possible.

Making them is definitely a delicate process. But, it’s not hard. Just something you have to pay close attention to. There are only a few simple ingredients. And most of the time is spent whipping egg whites, or letting the cookies sit before baking.

I flavored mine with lemon and raspberry. That is another thing I love about these. The flavor possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to try more soon.

Hard on the outside, but soft inside. Light as a feather and slightly crunchy. Sweet and delicious. This is the perfect spring cookie.

I used this method, from Martha Stewart. I used the Swiss meringue buttercream for filling. Also, this video helped me out a lot.

Enjoy!
