After searching and reading instructions and finally buying the ingredients, I successfully completed making my very first MACARONS. Although I wish I had followed another recipe after tasting one, I thought I did pretty good specially when I don't have any piping/frosting experience. There were a few things that was not quite right. The tip that I bought was too small. The batter was a little thicker and since I have not made them before I had nothing to compare. Almost forgot, the sizes were a little bit irregular. I had to ask Jeff to do the filling and I had to admit that he did a better job than me. Since I didn't have any cream to make the filling, I thought I would just wing it. It was made of white chocolate (Ghirardelli), cream cheese, a little vanilla and a splash of Rum Chatta. Surprisingly enough, it was yummy. My MIL gave me a different tip which is a little bigger after she tasted her very first macarons, the one I made. I thought I would try and taste one which I filled with Nutella. Well, here's the results and I hope you continue checking my blog for my next colorful macarons.
