Making Macarons: How Did It Go?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

I was thwarted in my plans to make macarons this past weekend – a last minute conflict with our free afternoon, not lack of desire! Did any of you find the time?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the whole ‘intimidation factor’ when it comes to making macarons. So many of us – even the professional pastry chefs I know! – talk about how hard it is to make macarons. It’s easy to get caught up in the drama and completely overlook the home cooks who have been quietly and happily making them for years.

I have a feeling that this is one of those things that seems impossible but becomes achievable if you desire the result enough. And also maybe we can relax our expectations just a little bit!

I still can’t wait to give these macarons a try and hope to eek out a free moment soon. Please share how your own adventures with macarons are going!
