America has fallen in love with French macarons. Shouldn't we go to Paris and stand in line at Ladurée as we are meant to? But no. They are everywhere. Every bakery has to have them. Every magazine has to have an article about them. And god knows, if you have a food blog, you have to blog them. Resistance is futile. I swear I tried.
So, French macarons with mocha fudge filling.
I'd like to say that I've had my fun and I'm done. I'm not. I could pretend it's because I have an expensive bag of Bob's Red Mill almond flour to use up. But in truth, it's because my first attempt didn't rise high enough and I didn't pipe my circles very circularly. I want to make some fun flavor-color matches. Like cherry-pink. Nutella-brown. Pistachio-green. And lemon-yellow!! How could I *not* make lemon-yellow macarons??
