French Macaron

I love to bake and try new recipes.  I have had this recent obsession with French Macarons,  I have searched tons of recipes and finally decided to give it a try.  I had read that they can be tricky and that it is sometimes difficult to get them to come out right.  I found this recipe and I thought it worked out great it used basic measurements! I have more recipes I would like to try most used grams so I need to purchase a food scale! 

I thought for sure my batter was too thin but it seemed to work out fine in the end. Make sure to let the batter rest for 45mins up to 2 hrs if you want the shell to bake properly!
 the "foot"  of the macaron turned out just like it was supposed too!
 I filled mine with Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

they were fabulous, they were crisp on the outside with delicate insides and the Swiss meringue was a perfect match!  I will be trying more very soon! 
Here are some great blogs I came across in my search, they have tons of useful info
on making French Macarons.
Hope you are having a great day!
