Sometimes it feels like I’m having more disasters than successes.
Saturday, I spent a few hours in the kitchen making my very first french macaroons. I followed a recipe from Pinterest step-by-step and they looked fair, tasted delicious and Stan claimed they were the best he’s ever had. I had so much fun making them and was thrilled with the outcome. So thrilled in fact, that I decided to make them again today. This time creating my own recipe with my own flavor combinations. But as you can see they were a flop.
Lesson learned: Wax paper and parchment paper are not the same thing no matter how badly you wish them to be. They’re sticking to the paper and refuse to come off.
Other than that, I’m still not totally sure what I did wrong. Maybe you can tell me? Have you ever made them? They flopped. They’re thin…. not enough flour?
Such a disappointment. I’m still not over it.
I’m gonna try again.
Just in case you’re wondering what they’re supposed to look like, I’ll post a gorgeous photo from blahnikbaker.com
