Ten lovely ladies joined me today at Adriene Rathbun's Social Class to learn how to make french macarons. They asked lots of good questions and were quick learners. Our first couple of batches turned out absolutely perfect! We ran out of time - as we always seem to do - and didn't have a chance to bake them all. But I had made enough "samples" for everyone to take home boxes of treats to share.
It was so nice to meet everyone. I hope my love of this silly cookie inspires them to bake many colorful batches in their own kitchens. After 3 hours, I think they realized it's not a recipe for wimps. There's definitely a commitment of time & energy when you go to bake them. But they're worth it.
