We had a night in Friday night. Life’s been busy, so we just decided to stay in, and relax. My little kitchen helper helped me make some cookies. I decided to try making macarons again, because I had some aged egg whites from Tuesday, but because little boy didn’t like them, we made some pre-made cookies. They were on sale at the grocery store, and came with a coupon, so I decided to pick up a package for the two of us. He had a great time arranging them on the cookie sheet:
And then patiently watched them cook:
He even found the oven mit and put it on himself!
Meanwhile, I was trying macarons out again. Yeesh. Maybe I’ll get them right one of these days. At least they weren’t hallow:
But by the time I put in the ganache, they were a little too tall for my liking:
Ah, well… at least they tasted good. I’ll get the knack of them someday! This is what happens when the mixture is too thick. I don’t think that I had enough egg whites. I had measured out 90g on Tuesday, and took 45g then, and I thought that I had 45g left, but I think it was probably a little less. I’ll keep at it until I have them perfected, and I’ll be sure to share the secret with you!
