Parisian Almond Macarons

26 Jul

Parisian Almond Macarons are tasty little jewels that are all about finely crafted restraint.  These recipes are simplified using fillings of jam and easy to make ganache.

Wander through the city of Paris, and you’ll find shop windows piled high with brightly colored Almond Macarons.  Unlike the big, brash coconut version most of us are familiar with, these little jewels are all about finely crafted restraint.  In France, however, most macarons are filled with buttercream, so preparing them is a fairly labor-intensive process.  To make these Parisian Almond Macarons, The Hungry Wife simplified the fillings by using marmalade, jam, ganache, and curd.  There is a single batter that could be used to prepare five different cookies.
