Ohhhh macarons: how I adore you!
Why do these little beauties melt in your mouth so perfectly? Why are they such an amazing cookie? Why do they cause me so much anxiety each time I attempt to make them? I mean, they are completely worth it when the end result is the chocolatey amazingness I have to share today.
It’s funny how these little treats have become such a special item in our home. Admittedly, I stress out a little bit each time I put a batch in the oven. I know that not all of my shells will turn out perfectly, but hey: that’s life. However, when the shells do come out with a frilly foot and can be filled with something delicious (this time: chocolate ganache), I am over the moon. It is honestly hard to bring myself to share them.
I have to laugh at the fact that my husband actually requests these for a treat. Before we met, I doubt he could even pronounce the name. But he’s been sucked into the awesomeness of the cookie, what can I say?
Now that I’m home for a few weeks, the opportunity to put some time and love into a batch of macarons is definitely a plus. I can spend a little bit of time in the late morning/afternoon to prepare and assemble…and can despair by myself if they fall flat.
What is your favorite flavor of macaron to enjoy?
