Birthday Macarons!

For my bestie’s birthday, we have several things going on. Yesterday was her actual birthday, but we started celebrating on Sunday. She had been wanting to try making macarons (an extremely temperamental item to bake) so she found a few recipes and we gave it a shot! (The one we drew from the most was from here.)

First thing on the recipe: Occupy the little man so we can get as much done as possible.

Almond flour and sugar. Already a yum.

Macarons are basically meringue cookies, so you start with meringue!

Combine it, and color it if you want…

Add some icing (or lemon curd, if you’re Lala and me) and make it a sandwich!

Viola! Cute and delicious. A little underdone (we didn’t double the baking sheets. Oops.) but totally yummy!

Stay tuned to hear about our upcoming BEACH TRIP this weekend! First time I’m leaving the kiddos with Hubby, and I’m pumped!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LAUREN!
