Macaron (French Macaroon)

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
My 9 year old daughter REALLY wanted to try to make macarons and I was super hesitant despite the fact that I have always wanted to figure it out. I have read and heard they were very difficult to make and didn't want her to be disappointed. The fact that macarons are delicious combined with being gluten free (which is necessity for me) makes this an ideal treat so I tasked her with finding an EASY recipe that didn't require a food scale. We followed the recipe to the tee (grinding our own almonds in the coffee grinder) and to my surprise they came out perfect! I did have to bake them for an additional 8 minutes or so (easy enough) so they wouldn't stick to the parchment paper. I am excited to try this again and again and experiment with different food colorings as well as flavoring.
