As the title of this post says… I made macarons AGAIN, this time with more success (still not perfect, but I will get there hopefully)! So since I already posted about the process here, I’m just going to update you with the things I changed this time.
Exhibit A – I sifted the ground pistachios and almonds so that there weren’t any big chunks.
Exhibit B – I made sure to form stiffer peaks this time.
Exhibit C – I piped them a bit smaller and rounder (I still need help making perfect circles while piping).
Exhibit D – YAY YAY Happy Dance! We have SMOOTH TOPS and (tiny) FEET!!!! This time I propped the oven door open with a wooden spoon during the entire baking process. Some of the feet were a little burnt (top picture)… not sure how to fix that for next time, but hopefully I can figure it out.
And lastly, I hope your St. Patty’s Day celebration is full of green threads, beards, hats, beer and downright sticking-your-tongue-out FUN! (Thanks for the great poses Bryce and Kurt!)
happy st. patty’s day! yay your macarons look yummy! haha gotta go all the way with the green beard!
Happy St. Patrick’s! Those do look good…. I’ve always wanted to try making those!

oh and thanks for making me crave some macaroons now!!
aah!!! looks like you had so much fun with your friends AND your macaroons…happy st. pats day!
yummy! I really enjoy baking…but if it doesn’t turn out right, I pretty much never try again…I’m glad you’re getting the process down, though!
I’m impressed, Sandy!! YUM!
Happy St Patty’s Day! xo
happy st. patricks day! ooh the macaroons looks super delish!!! YUM. im so bad at baking haha i envy you!
happy st. patty’s day!!! wow, these look so good!!! you’re so talented at this baking thing. i wish we lived closer so i get to eat your cooking!!
These look amazing!! Awesome job. I recently won the I Love Macaroons book in a giveaway, but I’ve been way to intimidated to try making them! Yours are beautiful.
yay!! it worked! but u know, i dont think ive ever had a maacroon yet.
You are really tempting me to drop the fear and go for it. I’ve never attempted macarons.
Now, that’s the way to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day! I’d much rather have beautiful macarons than the usual corned beef and cabbage. In fact, I could just eat a whole plate of those macarons and be quite content. 🙂
YUM!!! they are so pretty too!! Love the beard!
Great job. I haven’t tried them yet, but hope to real soon.
very proud of you! those look awesome. i am terrified of baking, so i wouldnt come close to even thinking about making a macaroon.
hope you St. patty’s was good… i’ve never attempted to make them but they seem difficult…
