In the cookies of life, friends are the macarons.
The beauty of having to move from a different place every year is that it forces you to throw away items and condense your belongings. Don’t get me wrong, moving is a pain in the ass, but it helps me realize what I need and what I don’t need and what the hell I was thinking when I purchased that. Taking a break from baking and blogging, I spent 2 weeks moving from my old apartment to a new place. As a result of this madness, I have no idea where anything is but I figured it was time for me to experiment with new macaron flavors for Macarons By Jane.
The inspiration came from Green & Black’s organic chocolates that come in assorted flavors. The mint chocolate is a celebration of my own mint plants that are growing in the backyard. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the bright green color of the macarons in comparison that Texas is pretty much brown due the scorching temperatures.
I’m going to be honest, I haven’t been using measuring cups/spoons or a kitchen scale to make my macarons. I have just been eyeballing the almond meal and powdered sugar amounts but oddly the macarons have been coming out better as ever! The recipe below is one that I always use though.
