Macarons are one of the best sweet treats I can think of! They are also my absolute nightmare. Well, almost… vegan Macarons are actually worse ;P They are really bit***s compared to these Chocolate Macarons with Hazelnut Praliné Cream. Nevertheless, I only make Macarons for special occasions and only when I’m in a good mood. Like last week. And here you can see the results… ;P
Do you know what day it is today? Exactly – Cookie Friday! Yay!
But this are macarons, right?! Exactly – delicious chocolaty macarons! Some may think now “hm… that are no cookies” – but to be precise – macarons are just plain ole cookies with a buttercream filling in the middle. With a fancy name. Ok they are delicious, but still cookies :P
Grab a double layer cookie with filling – just one(!) – and take a seat!
Macarons are perfect any day of the year. In the morning, afternoon and at night. 24/7 365 Days! :P Why? Because they are super delicious and you can ‘adapt’ them to any time or year or season – in summer you make something with berries and in winter you can make them with typical Christmas flavors – for example like these here with gingery cookies – awesome, right? :)
Oh well – it seems I cannot stop baking this Easter Season… the Easter Egg Cookies I made last week should have been the last bake for my Easter Special, but then I found a recipe for this delicious Eierlikör Cake and had to bake it. And now these… ;)
OK – this is actually something I wanted to do for a long time – delicious macarons made with lots of eggs – pretty obvious bake for Easter, right?
This year I wanted to make macarons in addition to my usual christmas cookies. I like macarons a lot – the making can be difficult, because those little bitches can cause a lot of trouble… but the result is plain delicious at the end (even though some of the macarons might look less perfect).
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
