So today I finally did it: I completed my goal to make macarons sometime this summer. The first batch looked like sad little puddles of meringue. But luckily, I added a little more powdered sugar to the second batch and the rest turned out (almost) perfect.
These treats are not easy to make! It was well worth it though because they taste pretty dang good and I got some great pictures of them.
If you want to try making them yourself check out this recipe. But for my macarons I didn't use the standard buttercream recipe (mostly because I'm lazy). Instead I just put raspberry jam in the center. Personally I like them better this ways because I don't have a tooth for really sweet foods.
Now take a look at my little masterpieces:
Looks good right? I was so happy they turned out! Speaking of happy, I'm doing the #100HappyDays along with Martissa. This is #day2 of my challenge. Follow my whole journey on Twitter!
Who else would like to join us on a journey to happier days?
