Ah...... these wonderful little clouds of amazingness.  There really isn't anything like it.  Light fluffy clouds of lovely meringue, tons of frosting, and jam in the middle.

Of course, something so delish isn't necessarily a piece of cake.  I've made them every Monday for the past few weeks, and I think I finally almost have them right.  First time, I overbaked them, second time I underbaked them so (of course) this time I think I have it just about right.  So naturally I had to take pictures of my little amazing creations.  :)

In the course of making them, we've found that at least for us, the Raspberry and Blackberry are our favorites (of course, they're colored to represent the flavors- and who wouldn't like pink and purple??)- I tried espresso but for some reason these really are just the best.  But you all are entitled to your own opinions- I'll just pig out on these and you all can have your gazillion flavors of macarons.

I didn't feel like typing up the recipe today- because the recipe is provided on this site.  But really what you need to do is get the cookbook that the recipe is from- The Bouchon Bakery Cookbook.

So here you all are- you're completely free to drool over your keyboard.






  1. Amazing! These look like bites of heaven clouds. So, the Bouchon cookbook: isn't that the Paris "cafe" that makes the pastries that Starbucks is now carrying? I've been spending a lot of time working in Starbucks lately, and the name sounded familiar….

    1. I believe that it is La Boulange that is providing Starbucks with some baked goods- but I couldn't be sure. :)

  2. They're just SO pretty!! I've never had a macaron before. This is what you need to make for us next time. :-D Pretty please.
