    I tried this recipe and I think it is missing some sugar/caster sugar. Usually macarons have these ingredients plus sugar. I have made macarons before and the batter in this recipe was not the same as those ones. The texture was different (quite thick) and when it was resting it didn't change or become hard on the surface. They tasted alright though. Good recipe to try but I wouldn't make it again  -  09 Nov 2017


    Turned out nothing like the picture… They looked like flat cakes. There were no feet development and had a rough surface (like a cake!). I waited an hour for the resting period but it still did not have the matte surface. The good side, its not as sweet as other macaron recipes but still tastes like a macaron!  -  17 Nov 2013
