[Passover in the Fridge] French Macarons

I made these before Passover started, and I’ve been going back and forth all week over whether to share the recipe. I made a lot of mistakes with these, both things that I realized after doing them that I could have done better and ways that I didn’t follow the recipe. I finally concluded that this blog will be much more fun if I show my failures as well as my successes, so lets begin. The recipe below is what I did, but if you’re bold you should experiment with the changes I recommend. If I make these again, you’ll definitely be getting an update.

Macarons (pronounced as “macaroons” in English, but as written in French), are a fancy dessert sold in French bakeries, but their popularity is spreading. They’re a bit expensive to buy. They’re also naturally kosher for Passover (and dairy-free) because they are made with almond flour. With that in mind, I figured I would try to impress the pants off of our seder guests with a homemade, fancy French dessert.
