Macarons again.

The tricks to a good macaron seem to be:

  1. Dont worry about over folding the mixture.
  2. trace SMALL circles on parchment and stay in those lines!
  3. Let the batter dry no more than an hour, stagger bake times.

Thanks to The Great British Bake Off for the basic recipe:

2nd time making Macarons. These are chocolate cherry and chocolate orange.

Update: My daughter begged me for days to make macarons until I finally gave it. I ground up some pecans because I was out of almond meal and my piping was pitiful but they still tasted great! These were mauve-looking chocolate anise and blue honeyed goat cheese (Daughter chose the colors.)
