While mowing the lawn I had been dreaming about the French Macarons my sister-in-law bought the day before at Pike Place Market. Mmmmm, my first bite EVER of one of these little delights and I was smitten with love for the delicacy.
However, I was not smitten with the price at two bucks a piece.
Because I cannot wait to finish mowing and I want a cookie NOW I jump off my mower, come to the computer and read up on this little cookie. Four hours later these beautiful treats are ready to eat. I also now know why they charge two bucks a piece.
This cookie is a labor of time and love but can be made at home by YOU.
Yesterday my copper bowls arrived in the mail yesterday. While reading recipes for the French Macaron, they say that they are the best for whipping egg whites and once you whip egg whites in copper bowls you'll never go back to a regular bowl. I used my KitchenAid for this first batch and they turned out great. Beginners luck? Maybe. I'll let you know after my second batch that will be made in my new bowls.
