Thanks for stopping by! I am so happy to be baking in the MacTweets Virtual Kitchen this month of Pink October to raise Breast Cancer Awareness! These little French treats are far from the usual macarons you have seen on my blog. This is an entirely new recipe to me, since I am baking from the book Laduree: Sucre [The Sweet Recipes].
Last week, as I was shopping online for a couple of birthday presents, I “accidentally” clicked 1-Click Ordering and sent the first gift to [clears throat] myself. And of course, since I have Amazon Prime [Unlimited FREE 2-Day Shipping], I realized this little mistake 2 days later. That’s how I ended up with Laduree: The Sweet Recipes. I am sticking to that.
The first present arrived in LA-LA Land a few days early, and the second present is at the mercy of India Post . Unfortunately, Amazon Prime does not include international parcel.
In case you have Laduree: Sucre book, or will be receiving one shortly, my Strawberry Macarons recipe is adapted from Macarons Amande [Almond Macarons] on page 12.
