Over the easter holidays, when I was back at home I had a go at making macaroons, but I didn’t add the granulated sugar at the right time and so i was left with a big sugary mess. I cooked them, while my dad looked at them and wasn’t very amused. I said I would give the cooked fail-macaroons to the chickens, but they went in a tin to my dad’s office and never came back, so they can’t have been that bad 🙂
Anywhos I decided to have another go at making them, and this time they turned out a lot better 😀
Even if I do say so myself I think they look pretty good. I have never been a fan of the piping bag, we just don’t get along, and so I used my trusty tea-spoon to put the mixture onto the baking trays, however this does lead to a large differentials in the size of the macaroons…..
Oh well, they were only going to my dad’s office, and they eat anything. I used a chocolate buttercream to sandwich them together, they need something flavoured otherwise they are a bit flavorless.
The next step to conquer my dad’s dislike for butter cream, which left half of the macaroons un-iced, but that was ok because they are the ugly ones
