I was so infuriated with myself the other day for not being able to succeed with either of the macaroon recipes that when I went into work today I mentioned it to the Chef. Now armed with the Ritz recipe I took another bash at it. Still not perfection! A couple of years ago my mom, sister and I went to a macaroon course at a local bakery and those were simply delicious, I just need to dig through the cellar and find the recipe... I'll be letting you know once I do!
