French Macarons

 

I decided I MUST attempt to make the French macarons that I keep seeing in magazines and on movies (Marie Antoinette, anyone?).  I’ve never even had one before!  I got the recipe from Martha Stewart and used her modifications to make pistachio and chocolate flavored meringues.  I also used her chocolate ganache recipe for the filling and made my own recipe for a cream cheese pistachio icing for the pistachio macarons.  They turned out wonderfully!  I highly recommend this recipe which can be found here.

Laduree of Paris supplied the macarons for Marie Antoinette.  If you are in the area, you may want to stop by… I have heard their pastries are heavenly.
