This week I've been out at my family's summer house in Montauk! It's so beautiful here, so peaceful like a little piece of heaven! I feel so lucky to have this house to come to. Maya and i stayed while my dad, grandpa, uncle and brother went back to the city a few days ago..I am so glad i decided to stay longer with Maya, i seriously can't think of a good enough reason to leave! :) We are having such a lovely time together and soaking up the summer weather, shopping in the hamptons, walking barefoot on the beaches, eating fresh seafood, relaxing on the deck, playing scrabble and watching movies! So excited that i will probably be spending most of my summer days here, considering my parents are selling our house soon and i am moving to Rhode Island for school in September!! Ah i can't wait!
Anyway, these macarons, or should i say 'Smacarons' :) turned out absolutely delicious, although they looked more like sandwich cookies rather than French Macarons...I think i made them too round or flat or something? Oh well ^_^ ha I don't quite know? I followed a classic French macaron recipe and filled them with raspberry jam and some Italian chocolate hazelnut spread that my dad had.
I am way more confident when it comes to cooking rather than baking, but I plan on attempting this recipe again soon and perfection is my goal! ;) Nevertheless it was very fun to make these and my family and i devoured them in a day!
Anyone have any experience making macarons, any tips?
