Since macaroons are pretty fussy little things, you have to make sure everything in the kitchen is grease free (that you are going to use). I knew that, but for some reason I completely spaced the first time I made these.
Everything else I did completely the same as last time...but this time instead of getting flatness, I got...
|See, identical to the other ones right before they went into the oven.|
|But this time I got FEET!!!!|
Since these turned out, I got to fill them and it was the perfect opportunity to use my food grade lavender my mom had gotten me.
|I brought the milk and the lavender to a boil and then let seep for 15 minutes.|
|After the 15 minutes were up, it was strained and put into the other ingredients.|
The recipe that I used for my macaroons can be found here from The Brave Tart. I knew as soon as I found her version that is what the one I wanted to use. She cuts out a lot of the "fussy" steps that she says are not necessary, and hers turn out beautifully!
Definitely glad I gave these a try again! Now I just need to find someone to eat them all before I do =]
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone.
