My first attempt at French Macaron!
Well, courtesy of photoshop these look okay but I made three trays of macarons and only about 10 came out. :-( These were much harder than I anticipated. The flavor was a vanilla cookie with a plum/rose butter cream. I didn’t do so good. I’ll try again next weekend and post the recipe if it comes out.
Things I learned:
1. Always put the cookie sheet in another cookie sheet. It keeps the cookie from getting to hot and cracking.
2. Let the cookie batter sit for a bit to dry out before putting in the oven. That really made a difference for the successful cookies.
3. Breathe. They are only cookies. (I kept repeating that OVER and OVER again)
Wish me luck on the next round!
