Macaroons (Take Two)

Another one off the list.

So I made macaroons. They were not easy. I followed the instructions exactly. Aged egg whites, sieved almonds, mixed till it flowed like magma. And I still only managed to get one tray to come out right.

Was it worth the effort? Not really. They look pretty and I got some good photos. But I'm not really that fond of them. Now I'm sure if I was eaten a professionally baked macaroon whilst standing under the Eiffel Tower in Spring I might think differently.

But I tried, eventually succeeded and now I can cross it off the list and be done with it. I don't think I'll be making them again in a hurry. Good luck to those of you who want to try. Here's the recipe I used.
