Here Comes the Macaron!

macaronsHere comes the Macaron! Macarons are taking the world by storm. Easily confused with macaroons, the macaron is originally credited to the Fench. These little gems are shaking up wedding desserts, first it was the cupcake, then cake pops and now the macaron! The macarons flavors are endless and so are the places you can find them.  

The four main ingredients to macarons are almond flour, icing sugar, egg whites, and granulated sugar. Sounds simple. Sounds being the key word.  

I'm not much of a cook, especally not a dessert cook. But with the help of a friend, tonight we are gonna brave these little french wonders.   The plan: pistachio macarons with salted butter cream and raspberry macarons with cream cheese butter cream and splenda instead of sugar.  

We are going to use the macaron recipe from Pastry Pal. They also have a free dowloadable pdf, including troubleshooting tips.  Which I'm betting we will need.

Wish us luck.

@Brenda they are soooo addicting. And the pistachio ones were very tasty. But it is pretty tricky to make them. I'm determined to try again. :)

I think Macarons are lovely and I love the colors (especially lavender). Can't wait to try yours or make some with you soon!
