Macaron monster....

Time to consider the "Sweet Life"... after visiting France, specifically, countless trips to Laduree Patisserie in Paris, I've become a "macaron monster." Countless times I vowed I'd try my hand at making macarons. I've been told that it's quite difficult and a daunting task, but I was determined that I'd prevail. Persistence pays off! Alas, my first batch of macarons. I was so proud, yet exhausted that I didn't even make the Nutella ganache I had my mind set on. Instead, I filled three of the macarons with straight Nutella. I damn near went into sugar shock and would have required a shot of insulin. ...no, I'm not diabetic! They were very sweet, but very good. I only could eat two, while my daughter ate one. I decided that I would have to make an appropriate filling to balance the sweetness, but it would not be tonight. Hence, they now sit in a Tupperware tub waiting patiently to be filled. Here is a picture of the one that was devoured. The rest are in an album. Many more macarons will follow as the flavor combinations are endless!!!!
