Recipe of the Day: Chocolate Macarons

This recipe is from Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook which I HIGHLY recommend ~ EXCELLENT book!  We have used it so many times – well worth the money. I personally wish she would call them by their proper name: Macaron, not Macaroon.  But what do I know?

Rachel made these last night (another after work wind down baking session).  They are wonderful!  She substituted pecan flour for the almond (I am VERY allergic to almonds) and used the frosting recipe from the Surprise Cookie Recipe for the filling.

Here is the original recipe: French Almond Macaroons and she made the chocolate version: Follow instructions for the French Almond Macaroons, sifting 2 TBSP Dutch Processed Cocoa powder with the confectioner’s sugar.

Those look AMAZING. And the dish you have them on is so pretty.
