They are Macarons!
Well, I have been trying to make macarons for some time.
Alas, I am yet to perfect the macaron but I am getting close!
My first attempt of macarons was a very fussy recipe and resulted in them all running together and resembling pink pancakes.
But this attempt no. 3 was close. I used this recipe from Australian Womens Weekly.
Back to the drawing board.
