On Sunday I made my “fourth ever” batch of macarons. That doesn’t qualify me as an expert, but they turned out so well that I’m going to post the recipe. For those of you who mentioned you wanted to try making macarons but hadn’t worked up the guts, just do it! It’s really pretty simple. […]

For those of you who haven’t picked up a copy of the August Cooking Light, here’s the recipe for the macaroons. I paraphrased a bit, but I think my abbreviated directions are accurate.
