I am an avid baker but macarons, or rather the recipes I've seen have always seemed to make the process seem extremely daunting but I was willing to give it a try. I used Martha Stewart's Parisian Macaron recipe and I am delighted with the results.
I made a few tweaks, such as taking out the salt and replacing with cream of tartar. Also, I made the filling with almond extract and added almond meal (I like almonds). And I added some crushed almonds to the outside on some.... Yes I love almonds
When I was done I placed them all in my deviled egg carrier for easy transport.
