|Macarons, second attempt|
Several months ago I tried my hand at making macarons. They didn’t turn out perfect but since it was my first try I was wildly happy with the results. Since then, they’ve been hovering over my head and in the back of my mind I wondered if it was just luck and coincidence that they turned out, or if I truly did get the technique right. I kept putting off another attempt though, because just the thought of all the work that goes into them made me tired.
Last week my girlfriend hosted her monthly potluck, with this month’s theme being eggs in honor of Easter. I figured now would be as good of a time as any to give macarons another go. I filled them with the leftover choco-almond frosting from the cupcakes I made over the weekend and while they still didn’t turn out perfect, they were just as delicious as could be. I think my friend, who ate one after another, agrees with me!
