Simple Scones
This was fabulous. I made this in my kitchenaid, once using softened butter to see if I could eliminate the grating and I still had fabulous results! Mixed dry ingredients in the bowl, added the softened butter and on low until crumbly, then added the fruit, then wet ingredients. This was delicious with dried cranberries and some orange zest and a squirt of the juice. A nice crumbly scones texture, but not overly dry. I am making them again next weekend for guests!

Macaron (French Macaroon)
Absolutely fabulous! These are my FAVORITE cookies and although I bake (all. the. time.) I have never attempted a macaron until tonight. These were better than the $2 per cookie ones I last had in NYC! I am so, so , SO thrilled to have tried this! I let them rest for one hour as suggested. I baked one sheet on silpat and one on parchment which I also sprayed with bakers joy (to be on the safe side, lol) and the silpat actually took significantly longer - baked more like 15 minutes. The parchment batch came out just fine, no sticking for me! Rose perfectly, perfect texture, delicious! I filled some with an almond buttercream and some with raspberry preserves and some with a layer of both - YUM! Oh, I also added about a half teaspoon of almond bakery emulsion (not sure how extract would impact the meringue) after the whites were whipped, but before adding the almond/sugar mixture. I also ground my own almonds - I keep a separate coffee grinder for nuts, does a great job. Thank you for this awesome recipe!

Sugar Cookie Icing
The ultimate test was using this for a holiday party with 16 children attending and decorating cookies. Needless to say, I needed quite a bit of icing! I found the flavor to be decent. The set up (drying) was rather quick which was great when you had kids who needed to take their cookies home. They had a beautiful shiny sheen, loved it! However, I did have to use much more liquid than the recipe indicated. I did not measure, so as other reviewers suggested, be patient and add liquid one teaspoon at a time (alternate milk/corn syrup to not mess up the ratios) until it hits the right consistency. Good basic cookie icing without egg white!
