My husband loves carrot cake but I never make it. Well...He was giving me grief the other day and I realized I have no good reason for why I haven't. Macarons are much more challenging than this so I figured what have I been waiting for. A little "elbow grease" and they practically put themselves in the oven.
I love making bourbon pecan pie on Thanksgiving. My husband and his family are big fans of that pie. The amount of corn syrup in that recipe is overwhelming. So to help my family enjoy the same flavor with less sugar I've developed this cookie recipe.
Macarons are known to be difficult. I've made a few batches now and I don't agree with that statement. Maybe when they were wholly made by hand, but with the tools I'm using my biggest struggles have simply been coming up with winning flavor combinations. And really that's the fun part so I'm not complaining!
This is another wonderful macaron recipe. It's the perfect way to introduce your kids to the macaron cookie to elevate your usual backyard snack. If you're feeling particularly ambitious take this cookie to the next level by carefully toasting the marshmallow filling!
I have recently fallen in LOVE with macarons and the whole process of baking them. These are a mashup of my husband's favorite bourbon pecan cookie recipe and my macaron obsession. These are so good, maybe you should make a double batch just to be safe...
