Macarons have become a popular treat lately, but I for some reason never went out and bought any at a store or bakery etc. Maybe it`s because for some reason they never seem to sell them at the bakeries i go to and i rarely go to bakeries or foodstores anyway ahah. (Well maybe now I will more because I now have a car and full license).. Anyway, I figured why not look up a recipe and try making them myself!
I didn`t have too many fancy ingredients in my house so I decided to just make chocolate espresso type macarons and I made some with chocolate ganache filling and some with buttercream filling.
Making acceptable-looking macarons is difficult! How do they get them so perfectly round and even? Mine all were lopsided and sort of ugly looking, but food`s for eating, right?
I did also have a problem of them sticking to the baking sheet after taking them out of the oven. So I ended up with a lot less macarons than I would have had. Oh well.
Surprisingly, they didn`t taste too bad! I mean I`ve never had a bakery one or real one to compare them to, but they still seemed pretty good. They were basically just a coffee- chocolate flavored tasting cookie that was soft and squishy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I think that`s what they are supposed to taste like ?! lol
So yeah, that was my baking experience with macarons. Maybe I`ll try to make them again one day.
Do you like French macarons? Have you ever tried making them yourself?
