Yes I know I just posted macarons last week, but I must admit that I’m a bit obsessed! I think the main reason is that every time I’ve tried to make them since discovering this recipe they’ve turned out so well! And I don’t want to jinx myself- but I’m kinda thinking these “delicate” cookies really aren’t as scary hard as I always thought. I mean this could easily all backfire the next time I make them, but I’ve now made versions of this recipe three times, and each was better than the last. Is there a big hoax out there to make us think macarons are harder than they look? Maybe? :)
This recipe is almost to identical to the wonderful Vanilla Macarons I posted last week. The only change is- you replace 2 tablespoons of the powdered sugar with cocoa powder and nix the vanilla. Otherwise it’s the same simple and quick recipe. (Except the aging the egg part- which I did try this time and though I noticed a few minor differences, I don’t think its totally necessary.) For the filling, I just swirled some peanut butter into leftover vanilla butter cream. (Did you know that you can keep frosting in the fridge for a long time? I just recently discovered that and now have a frosting bank accumulating!)
Two last things: Thank you all so much for the positive feedback on the my first video tutorial. I am going to try to learn a bit more about editing and camera work so this can be a regular thing. I really appreciate the support.:)
Also- tune in this Sunday to the CBS Sunday Morning show. Today I’m filming a segment to be a part of the “Oreo’s 100th Birthday” portion of the show that airs in a couple of days! I’m teaching them how to make Homemade Oreos! Woohoo!!
