My First Macaroon Attempt
I’ve talked about trying to make Macaroons for years now. Years!
While planning my wedding I searched all over Nashville for a bakery that sold macaroons. I really wanted to wrap them up in cute little boxes and give them as wedding favors to our guests. But alas, I couldn’t find them anywhere in my city. It was so sad.
So yea, especially since then I’ve wanted to try my hand at making them myself. Last weekend I finally did it! Finally.
I had this raspberry preserve in my fridge so I used that as the filling. To make things a little less daunting.
The end result wasn’t perfect by any means. I think the lack of superfine sugar is noticeable and I think I needed to have baked them for a few more minutes? They were a bit flat. What causes that? Either way, I’ll be trying these again very soon. I WILL master these babies!
Y’all….I’m figuring this baking thing out. It’s happening!
Speaking of figuring baking out. Did y’all see he “Baking Bootcamp” that Joy from Joy the Baker is doing??! I love this so much and plan to participate in all 4 of the challenges! Plus there’s a prize! Check it out.
