Homemade Lemon Macarons

Share a little about the ingredients and techniques used to create this dish/item. This is my first attempt at baking French macarons in about five years. When I last made them, my failure to success ration was about 5 to 1. This time, I watched Colette Christians's class, used her recipe (I simply added lemon flavoring to the cookies and used lemon curd from Trader Joe's for the filling), and am so happy to report that it was nearly foolproof -- only five cracked tops in about 36! What are you most proud of? I had struggled with making macarons in the past, so I was most delighted in how these turned out :) I am definitely inspired to make more. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Colette's class, Miniature French Desserts: Macarons, Madeleines & More! It really made a difference in my macaron success rate!

Q&A with miwts

Colette Christian asked:
Hi miwts, They look beautiful and delicious. Great job. The cracking of the unfortunate 5/36 may have been from a hot spot in your oven. These look great - lovely color Happy Baking! Colette
miwts answered:
Thank you, Colette, for another amazing class and for your kind compliments! Great tip about the hot spot -- it totally makes sense, considering they happened in a specific area of the oven. Happy Baking!
