Vanilla Macaroons








We ate these in Paris, and though they are intimidatingly beautiful for the home baker, at Daisy's insistence (she's been poring over the book Macaroons that someone gave us), we gave them a try.

Egg whites, sugar, ground almonds, and vanilla, and a plastic sandwich bag for piping. Not bad at all, actually. And honestly, ours tasted better than the ones we paid a lot for in France.

I have been wanting to make macarons for so long and I'm completely intimidated by them for some reason! I guess it's finally time to suck it up and try them. Wish me luck!

With that kind of wonderful promotion, any chance you could share the recipe?

Is there a trick in terms of how long to beat them, or folding some stiff batter into delicate egg white? I love these, and am also looking for a make-at-home alternative to the costly bakery ones.

I have been practicing my macarons. Yours look perfect! When my husband saw my first macaron attempt he said, "Looks like something you'd find on the side of the road." After he ate one he said, "delightful!"
