I’m a little addicted to the Food Network & baking shows in particular. And I’ve always been fascinated by macaroons. They are pretty and perfectly round and different colors and they look wonderful. I bought one at the Dallas Farmer’s Market and it was $3. And that is a typical price. So I’ve never bought another one. But then on the baking shows they look pretty easy…so what to do but to try to make them? So I did.
So I had to buy stuff I didn’t have. Almond flour. Food coloring gel. But I figured out quick enough that all of it’s pretty easy. I had to make meringue basically. It was a little messy but it will be less messy next time. And I need piping help but it will be better next time. But they tasted pretty darn good. And I’ll make them again. Now I just need another color.
And I got to use my fabulous Christmas present, my flour sifter. It’s is one of my most favorite gifts ever. I love it!! Thanks, Deborah.
