our "love day" cookie

Libby received a macaron maker for Christmas.  We weren't sure how well it would work, but were pleasantly surprised by the outcome.  I'll be honest.  We didn't make macarons that tasted like those from Laduree, but these were a little breeze of Paris in our kitchen.  
The kit includes super easy directions with a lot of different recipe's.  Many different choices and flavors.  
All the tools included to make the perfect little cookies.  And all perfectly sized.  
We made a basic buttercream frosting for the filling and tinted it pink for Valentine's Day.
These are almond flavored.
Next up, coconut.

Great first try...they are actually called "macarons", macaroons are the coconut haystacks.

I've been wanting to making these for ages, Leslie! They look too beautiful to eat! The March copy of Martha Stewart Living just arrived in my mailbox and the entire cover is filled with macarons...must be a message for me! It's snowing...again...today so I'm off to my kitchen to try these! Congrats to you and Libby -
you're both my inspiration! You did a fabulous job!
