I did it! I did it! My macarons have feet!!! Woohoo…….Before u think I’ve gone a little crazy & say what feet? Let me just explain that “feet” are the frilly ruffle that forms at the base of the macaron. It’s a must for macarons or they won’t be macarons at all.
Ever since I first tasted macarons, I have to say it’s probably one of my favorite dessert. ok ok I know I say that a lot but truly over time, while some desserts have drop off the list, macarons have always remain on the top of the list.
Since macarons are so expensive, I’ve always wanted to make them especially when I buy a few precious ones & my toddler gulps them down like candy & not leaving any for mommy!!! :p But I’ve read so much abt the difficulty of making them which is a little discouraging. But lately, there was a macaron craze in one of the food forum that I frequent & looking at all the beautiful creations really pushed me to try it.
Here’s the result:
Not too bad, huh? They are a little flat ‘cos I overmix the batter. Will have to improve on that. But the most impt fact is that they have feet. For a first time, I’m very happy with the result. Hopefully it’s not just beginner’s luck! :pSince I didn’t have any buttercream, I sandwich some Nutella between them. Even DH who never likes desserts gave a thumbs up! : p Thanks to Tamami from Coco&Me for generously sharing her recipe !
