Baking French Morsels
I've been enjoying baking French morsels lately, French Macaroons and Madeleines in particular. They are really scrumptious treats indeed; I have to stop myself from eating too much of them. Have you tried to bake those? Do you like them? I found the process of making the macaroons a bit more time-consuming and fiddly and they are rather sweet to eat, they were supposed to be pink (strawberry flavour), but I didn't add enough pink food colouring ( I must've been too well conditioned not to have food colouring in food) to make them turn out pink enough. Good thing is my kids still absolutely loved them whether they were pink or not. (Let's see, their colour made them look more like Caramel or Coffee Macaroons, we could just call them any of those? Non?) The Madeleines were simple and easy-peasy to make but disappeared extremely quickly as soon as they were out of the oven. If you asked me if I would bake them again, I would say I would. (Next time I want to make Mint Green Macaroons and make sure I get them to look mint green!!!) Thanks for coming by here, have a lovely weekend; Till next time.
