My wife and I got a wild hair today and gave macarons a try. Tedious work, but all in all not too hard. We made a ganache for the filling. I found out I am terrible at piping, so my wife took over at that point. Below are some photos of the cookies. They are still cooking at the moment. We did get a few cracks on the side, but those where the ones I piped. Not sure if that can a deal breaker with these. Let us know what you think of the finished product, and any tips that you are willing to share for a better macaron.
