I have successfully made macarons before, but today was not one of those days. This month we made macarons, one of my favorite cookie sandwiches, but it just didn't work out for me. Don't get me wrong, they were good. But wrong. They were too sticky, didn't have feet, and felt wrong. I usually make the recipe from Gourmet, but I tested out this recipe. It worked for some other people, but not for me. Oh well.
The 2009 October Daring Bakers' challenge was brought to us by Ami S. She chose macarons from Claudia Fleming's The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern as the challenge recipe.
I won't be posting the recipe because it's posted everywhere else, but just because it didn't work out for me don't think it won't work for you! The 99% humidity here probably has something to do with my failure, too.
