There is something about fall that makes me want bake! As it gets colder outside there is nothing like the heat from an oven and the smell of fresh baked cookies. I’ve been wanting to try making french macarons for a while now and I decided now is as good of time as any to take on one of the most difficult things to bake (or so I’ve heard). Turns out the rumors are true! I used this recipe from the great Martha Stewart and I realized when it comes to baking I am anything but. The hardest part of these little french cookies is making them look perfect. Despite my best efforts, most of my circles came out looking like ovals. I used orange food coloring to make them a bit more halloween-themed and at least they did actually taste delicious. However! with the extra filling I was able to make coconut meringue cookies which came out amazing! Moral of the story – if at first you don’t succeed, try something completely different and pretend like that’s what you meant to do all along.
