My Sister-In-Law and I tried our first attempt at Parisian Macarons. "Macarons" with one "o" differentiats these treats from the traditional American "macaroon").
We used Martha's recipe, and it really turned out pretty well. That is...the first batch did. I heard if you spray the parchment paper with pam they will come off it better, since they tend to stick. Well we had no problem with the first batch that did NOT have pam on the paper. But the second batch, which we did spray turned out very dry and super crispy, with a ring of crusty brown around the edge. Yuck! The first batch was perfectly crisp and chewy.
Try this recipe if your doing Macarons for the first time! Soooooo yum, and super cute.
