Macarons

Posted

Macarons are the hardest thing I have ever tried to make but they are well worth the effort.

These colourful little delights can be made in almost any flavour/colour combination. Some of my favourites are listed below.

Note: Macaron shells are wheat and dairy free so depending on the filling are suitable for wheat free and dairy free diets.
