Saturday I made my first Macaroons. Well, first I must say that they do take a little time. After you have prepared everything and piped them onto a tray you have to let them sit for 1/2 an hour to set. They should feel a little firm, mine never did.

You have to tap the bottom of the tray to release the air bubbles, this apparently gives the Macaroon it's "foot". I did that but as you can see mine never got their feet. You also have to smoothe the tops with a wet finger so the Macaroon is smooth and glossy when baked. I did that but they were not glossy.

My Macaroons looked more like Whoopee Pies but I must say they were delicious. The had the crunch on the top and the soft centre and the ganache filling was heaven. I will not give up. I am planning to keep trying different recipes until I perfect the allusive Macaroon.

Drop by my other blog WICKED FAERIE QUEEN today and meet my newest family member, Rufus.


  1. They look yummy,but your right not quit the right macaroon.Pretty little sandwhich cookies though.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  2. I wish I had one of those right now! I think you will have it down with no problems, maybe you should try a alternate recipe and do the one that your happy with. I will have to check out your macaroon pics below to see the "foot" your talking about.

  3. I think they look delicious! You did fabulously, my friend.
