I Love Macarons

Macarons are a high-maintenance, fickle, difficult cookie to make, as are most French pastries. Bake them too soon, they crack, mix them too much, they’ll get greasy. I Love Macarons by Hisako Ogita has illustrated step-by-step instructions and little pointers that help you to finally get the hang of macarons, and it’s worth it because really, they are one of the most adorable and delicious cookies.

    I bought this lovely little book soon after it was published; though I have yet to make any attempt at baking my own macarons. It still makes me too nervous! Maybe once the weather is cool enough for my kitchen to be bearable with the oven on?

    Hey, I have this book, but have been a little scared to try them. I'm going to trust you!

    I need that book! My one and only attempt at making these little delights resulted in completely flat disks, that although quite tasty, looking nothing like they should! I must try again.

    Thank goodness for the few local bakeries that handle the hard work of making these little airy puffs of flavor.
