Don’t get me wrong, these are all good things and I’m thankful, just so very busy. And now that I can take a breath, the cool weather is on my doorstep along with a sun that doesn’t rise until 6:30 am. Sigh…..I love Summer…..I want to capture each day and enjoy every moment.
I went back to another site written by Amberlee called giverslog who used Martha’s recipe as her inspiration and she detailed each step very nicely. Be sure to visit her site and follow her recipe. Vanilla bean macarons were not listed as an option on her blog, so I decided to add my vanilla bean to the flour/confectioners sugar mixture which is then sifted into the whites AFTER they have formed stiff peaks. It worked perfectly. Can you see the little vanilla beans in the macaron? Yumm.
