It was Xmas time and I was trying to find a macaron recipe after having tried them in Paris. Lots of recipes around but complicated and off-putting for most. (I am a retired chef and am used to honing down “gourmet” recipes). After compiling and trying and testing, I came up with a recipe that works great and is not complicated. I want to share it with you.
This is not a recipe for purists. Please keep that in mind. It is meant to be an easier way to make a macaron or macaroon.
The French way is to lather ganache (a sort of chocolate frosting) on the bottom of one and press another one together to make a little sandwich.
There are lots of variations to the flavor but that is not the purpose of this recipe.
