Jessica from Childerhouse perfected the French art of making macarons and shows you how with great photos along the way. These macarons can make great holiday treats or gifts!
Macarons have a sort of wonder reserved for them, a certain high favor that is not usually bestowed upon cookies. Their tricky preparation and French origins make them seem a little inaccessible to the home cook, a problem compounded by the fact that until recently, nearly all macaron cookbooks were printed solely in French. I had two macarons at a fancy pastry shop in New York a couple years ago, and decided to learn how to make them. There are a lot of resources scattered around online and in books, so I decided to compile all the information I use here, in one place.
