Stylish sweet treat - Macaron mood


What a dainty, delicious sweet treat! A magical combo of almond flour, sugar and egg whites.

I could eat macarons every single day but I rather keep them for special occasions. With endless colour and flavour combinations these little pieces of art could be a great gift for birthdays, Mother’s day or anniversaries, especially if you make them by yourself. I’ve never attempted to make French macarons, but it’s definitely on “my kitchen challenges” list for the near future.  If you have a foolproof recipe, please share it. Tips and tricks welcomed!  :)

Fortunately there are plenty of places to find and buy excellent macarons.  Here in Budapest Chez Dodo, Villa Bagatelle/Bagatellini and Sugarshop are my top sweet shops if I am in a macaron mood.

Do you like maracons too? What's your favourite flavour? :)
