Vanilla Macarons

Macarons1

Welcome to the macaron zone, aka the dark side.

Macarons have definitely become a bit of a craze right now… and rightly so! They are the perfect combination of a chewy shell and soft middle, the list of flavours you can create is endless. Here’s the bad news, if you are a macaron addict… they are irritatingly pricey to buy and exceptionally tricky to make at home.

Fear not! I have found a way! (It took me long enough!)

Don’t get me wrong, they are a bit fussy to make. But once you know the method and have figured out what works best for your cooking environment, you will succeed.

I did a lot of research before attempting to make macarons. It can be the most frustrating thing as every post or recipe says something different. And by no means am I an expert on these French delicacies. But I have figured out a method that works for me every time.

It took me many painful batches/hours/days to perfect them and I was so close to giving up. I don’t think any of my family dared to enter the kitchen area for the weeks that I was attempting/failing – I think they were more relieved than me when I finally ‘cracked it’ (excuse the pun).

So we’re going to do this together, step by step, until we have succeeded. Mixers at the ready people!
