Macarons.....#FirstMondayFavorites

My friend, Sid, of Sid's Sea Palm Cooking, invites us each month to link up on the First Monday and share our most favorite recipe of the prior month.

This is a difficult choice and each month I struggle with it.  I had several again this month that I loved like Frutti de Mare, Dolmathes and Ifisashi.  It was a very varied month for International recipes, as you can see.  The recipe I am choosing to share is also from another Country, France to be exact.



I finally bit the bullet and tried my hand at Macarons.....I don't know why I was so intimidated by these light airy cookies that are crunchy on the outside and tenderly moist on the inside.  They were really not very difficult at all and I was so pleased with the results that I couldn't wait to share it with you again.

    1. I was too, Jas, but it really was much easier than I thought it would be. Sally is the expert so look to her blogs for tips. I did make sure my eggs were at room temperature.
