So, I finally had the courage to take a shot at Macarons! I think they came out pretty good, being my first time. The only set back was trying to remove them from the pan. But, with the good advice from http://www.mytartelette.com/ I was able to put a few drops of water under the parchment paper and remove them. They were 2" round and made 24 Macarons.
Anyway, here are my delicious Macarons filled with Nutella (I took a shorcut with making the filling as I could not wait to try them). I had my husband, brother and Mom try them and they all loved them.
