I imagine that if orange had a smell, it would smell of the fall leaves.
So, keeping with the theme of fall, I made Orange Spice Macarons!
I'm still working on the dome top. The problem with this batch is that I added a little too much almond flour, so they were heavy, and did not settle the way I would have liked. But they still remind me of fall, and are still quite delicious! I am my own worst critic!
So, here's the question I pose, what do you know of macarons.
Last April, the Times Online posted an interesting article on the Macaron: Macaroons (edit: STUPID! They even have a picture of a macaron): what that fashionista is eating. Claiming that a rise in popularity for the little cookie has caused it to begin bumping the beloved cupcake.
So, the questions I pose is this: Is the macaon the new cupcake?
Tell me what you think! I'm curious to know!
