Macaroon is a french word that means almond cookie. What's so interesting about Macarons? It is made simply from egg whites, almond meal and icing sugar. No wheat flour involves and that's why it tastes nothing like any other cookies.
Every food blog I go I see people making macarons. Some blogs would only talk about macarons. The other day I was hunting for some almond meal at a health food store, the shop assistant asked what I needed it for. She was making some macarons few days ago too, said she.
I always thought that macarons must be some sort of over-rated cookies that are being sold at french patisserie.
After that first bite; It was seriously, freakin' damn good!! No wonder people get hooked and obsessed about macarons. They don't come cheap either. It's $2 each. The most expensive one is A$10 each cookie - made with black truffle. If you want to get a man to love baking, it has to be making macarons. Our first attempt was a success!
I got my recipe from Tartelette and the must do steps from Poh's Kitchen.
Have you tasted Macarons before? If you see one, you seriously have to try it.
