our "love day" cookie

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Libby received a macaron maker for Christmas.  We weren't sure how well it would work, but were pleasantly surprised by the outcome.  I'll be honest.  We didn't make macarons that tasted like those from Laduree, but these were a little breeze of Paris in our kitchen.  
The kit includes super easy directions with a lot of different recipe's.  Many different choices and flavors.  
All the tools included to make the perfect little cookies.  And all perfectly sized.  
We made a basic buttercream frosting for the filling and tinted it pink for Valentine's Day.
These are almond flavored.
Next up, coconut.
