When a recipe does not work out, I usually give up. But not so with macarons. I was very determined to make a perfect macaron, just like the ones we have at the Le Panier bakery, Seattle Pikes Market.
I have also watched this video over 20 times, no joke, trying to make macarons perfect. I would highly recommend watching it to understand the concept of making a macaron.
PS: If you happen to be in the Pikes Market area, I would highly recommend visiting Le Panier bakery. Their coffee is amazing and baked goods are endless.
