Alright, I’m cheating a bit this week, since this isn’t really something you could have as a meal, but I was away, so I fell behind. This is also something I’ve been wanting to make, but I was a bit intimidated by because I’ve heard they are tricky.
I tried to find a recipe that used flour instead of almond meal, but I gave up and ground some almonds into a flour in a vitamix and used that.
Here is the recipe. This recipe is from another excellent Youtuber named Rosanna Pansino who has a channel called Nerdy Nummies. I highly recommend it!
For macarons, you need to make a flour/sugar mixture and you need to make meringues, and then combine them. Needless to say, they were very sweet, but probably a bit too sweet. I have never had a macaron before, so I have no idea if they turned out correctly. But I don’t think I’ll be making these again.
