well, we did it. we tackled the macaroon (macaron, whatever)! it seems like this cookie had a bad reputation. one of being tough to make. and it scared people off! itty bitty round-up this month.
the truth is, for me, anyway, i see why this cookie is avoided. it was a pain the *bleep* to deal with. i enjoyed nothing about making or eating these. which leads me to believe i did it wrong. supposedly they are lovely and delicate and sophisticated. all i saw was a sticky mess.
perhaps i was jaded by all the "ooooh, not macaroons!?" kind of comments. perhaps i was predisposed to not like them or enjoy making them. i don't know. and i don't think i'll find out!
for those who didn't particpate but are curious, we used this recipe
as for the round-up...thanks to everyone who came through! i really appreciate not being left alone with these stickly little buggers!
