Folks I have been going crazy over the french macarons for a minute. They are definitely wildly popular here in the states. However, for some reason, many are intimidated about making the delicate cookies at home. There are a plethora of websites, books and videos dedicated to macarons that demonstrate how easy it is to make the treats. Yet, although there are just a few ingredients, there are precise steps that must be used to ensure your macarons turn out correctly.

Note: You can use Almond Flour or Almond Meal as a substitute for ground almonds. In addition, you will need to have a kitchen food scale.

Below are a couple of great videos showing you how to make French Macarons.

Note: In the above video, it was stated that the macarons could automatically go into the oven after placed on the baking sheet. I would suggest to still allow the macarons to rest before placing them in the oven.

Need a kitchen scale? Check out the following scales at Amazon.

If you don't feel like making your own macarons from scratch, you can just purchase them.

A few fab places to purchase macarons are Macaron Cafe, Dana's Bakery and Bottega Louie.  Order online.
