These did not turn out quite as expected. The cookie part just kept puffing up so much! And I couldn't figure out why. It was frustrating. Also, they do take forever to make.
They tasted better than they turned out looking. Still... Last time I made macarons, I didn't have quite as many problems. I still don't know what went wrong. And there is still a question of them being worth the time and effort it takes to make them. I am determined to conquer the macaron, though. This won't be my last encounter with them.
Try making them if you want! I used this recipe. (I tried to grind dried mango and it did not work out well for me. So I just left that part out of the recipe).
