My First Attempt at Macarons!

Notice I used the word attempt to make macaron's since coming back from France I am craving all things French, I also made Madeleine's today much more successful, recipe to follow.
So I didn't have any almond paste or a piper to get them in a lovely shape, so in essence I made little meringues with nutella inside!
I must say very tasty all the same, I also sprinkled some lemon moravian cookies on the top for a local twist.

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of cocoa
  • nutella
  1. whisk the egg whites until fluffy and stiff then add in the cocoa and sugar
  2. add little dollops onto the parchment paper and sprinkle the cookies on top
  3. allow them to sit for 30 minutes to an hour, per Jamie of life's a feast she is the best Mac maker!
  4. bake in the oven at 280 degrees for 20- 30 minutes
  5. let them cool them stuff with nutella

The finished product not so pretty as some ingredients were omitted and I didn't pipe them, next time I will be more precise he he, I know I need to be as a baker!

I also want to thank Anncoo of Anncoo's hobby and Kristy of My Little Space for the appreciation award, I wish to pass this along to all of you as well. I so appreciate your support readership and comments, they make my day. I also adore reading all of your blogs.
