Guys. I made strawberries and cream macarons. It’s been a good 3 or 4 years since I’ve made them and I’m glad I still haven’t lost the method! It was like riding a bike. I wasn’t sure if I should post these or not because this blog focuses on healthy recipes. Thinking about it some more I thought why not. Macarons are a big part of our life right now because it’s the treat my daughter gets when she goes to potty. Yup. It was the only treat that would consistently get her to use the potty and now she is out of diapers, but going through our money by buying her all the macarons. Her uncle even sent her some via FedEx from New York!
Last week it was a rainy week in the Bay Area and we stayed home a lot because of this yucky flu that has been going around. So I decided – let’s make some macarons! I asked my daughter what she wanted to make and she said strawberry and lucky enough we were at Trader Joe’s last week and had some freeze dried strawberries.
I learned how to make macarons successfully from attending a Sur La Table class. These are the tips the instructor she gave me that I still remember to this day:
I have to say they did turn out pretty good. Oh and the ones I gave my daughter had a plain coco whip filling with out the champagne.
These macarons are simply beautiful and perfect for Valentine’s day!
They’re lovely! The pastel pink shade is perfect for strawberries and cream
I could stare at macarons all day. Yours are so perfect and beautiful! You’ve definitely got the technique down! 🙂
they are beautiful and I bet they taste delicious
I LOVE macarons and have yet to make them at home. It is HIGH on my to make list….and I would devour these for sure.
SO pretty! I’ve never tried making macarons at home before. These would be such a hit at a bridal shower.
Awww, perfect macarons! I haven’t made these since I learned how in pastry school. I think I gained 15 lbs until I graduated! I must say, it’s been nice stepping away from all that sugar. These look fantastic though Rezel, nice job! 🙂
These look so incredibly delicious! Your photos are gorgeous 🙂 Pinning this recipe for later a baby shower I’m attending.
