Macarons. Love 'em... or Hate 'em

The relationship I have with macarons is a love/hate one. Love them cos they're really oh so gorgeous to look at with their smooth dome tops and frilly "feet". But, they're also oh so annoying to make. Baking macarons is a task of acute detail and delayed gratification, definitely not a confection to try when in a lackadaisical mood. Yet, each time I feel an almost obligatory attraction towards baking the perfect macaron.

Well, this time it shall be lemon flavoured ones. I still have lemon curd left over from the earlier cheesecake session you see...why leave it to waste.

  1. You should try the macarons from Pierre Herme if you ever have the chance to go to Paris/ Tokyo!
