My humble apologies if you’re not a macaron fan. This is after all, my third mac post in a row, but if you are a fan…stick out your hand and grab a seat on the macaron party bus! Free shots of agua con gas for everyone, woohoo!
Actually there’s no party or bus, but I might have some fizzy water in the back of the fridge somewhere. After so many fails I feel pretty good notching up three macaron recipes in a trot, you see me and the meringue got off to a bad start, but life is too short for broken relationships so we decided to give it another go and we seem to be doing just fine.
I was planning on making some fine hot cross buns for this weeks Easter festivities. I remember eating them back home slathered in butter, you’d see them for sale everywhere but here in California you have to sniff them out a little more. They’re here but not guaranteed in every store. Rather than drive around and add to the demise of the planet I’ll just make my own. Problem solved. No..problem just beginning. As I was checking off the ingredient list for the buns I noticed I had no yeast.
Get This…hot cross bun macarons taste exactly like hot cross buns. Winner winner hot cross bun dinner!
