Before I tell you about how good I am at inhaling sugar, I want to say hi and welcome to some of the new readers around here. I am so happy that you came by and I can't wait to get to know you and hear your stories. :)
Are you all familiar with the French macaron? Not its American counter part the coconut macaroon. If you haven't had a real macaroon I suggest you go out immediately and find one so you can experience the bliss! It is basically two little almond meringue cookies sandwiched around a delicious creamy filling. They are delicate and delicious.
Our class made an insane amount of macarons a few weeks ago. We diligently worked at them, piping perfect little circles and mixing decadent fillings so that we could
Violet and Black Currant
Rose and Raspberry
Pistachio and Cinnamon
Two days later, they reappeared and all I know is that it went quiet and 2 minutes later every one looked around. Everyone with mouths full of macarons, looking guilty. (awkward turrrrtle). It was hilarious and we just had to laugh in spite of ourselves. Crazed pastry students.
We brought our boxes to fill them and it was like shopping on black friday. You had to race to each flavor to make sure you got them. First come, first served baby. Luckily, there was no pepper spray involved.
What do you think about macarons? Do you like them as much as we do?
