Passion Fruit Macaron

A drumroll moment… Successful macarons with the prettiest feet and smoothest tops! Yep, I finally did it.

Macarons have got quite the reputation of being tempramental cookies (macarons from this very batch cracked on the tops!), and if you’ve been here long enough you probably know that previous attempts have been far from desired. After a lot of reading, testing and troubleshooting I got a batch of very delicious passionfruit macarons – they were so good, I had eight at one go. No kidding.

I used this recipe for making the macarons, and filled it with a passion fruit ganache. I’ve been putting together notes from all that I’ve learned and will share that with you soon after I’ve made the macarons a few more times (more experience! more pointers!)

That’s one more thing checked off my 2010 list. Phew!
