MACARON FILLING DIRECTIONS
My sister helped me make these French macarons. This was our second attempt at making them and with each try, we get a little better. They were a bit time consuming to make, but the end result was enjoying a cup of coffee and freshly baked French macaroons.
She took the macaron baking pan back home with her, but I’ll be adding one to my kitchen very soon. Since a visit across the pond to the lovely country of France isn’t in my immediate future I’ll just have to start mastering my pastry making skills. I figure if I start now I might be half as good as the French pastry chefs in, oh, about 10 years or so.
