Daring Baker October Challenge

Macarons with Chocolate Ganache

The 2009 October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Ami S. She chose macarons from Claudia Fleming’s The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern as the challenge recipe.
This time the Daring Bakers tried their hands on one of the pinnacles of backing, namely french macarons. It was one of those occasions where being a Daring Baker gives you the opportunity to try something you would never have thought of doing on your own. (well, "thought of" maybe yes, but "actually done" absolutely not ;) ) I made run-of-the-mill almond macarons filled with a chocolate ganache. Unfortunately, I didn't get any feet at all, but I still liked the crunchy, moist and chocolaty macarons. Thanks Ami for this great choice.

I think they look cute. And who needs cookies with feed?

I think they look pretty decent and must have tasted great too. Agree with Wic .. who needs "feet" - it's the taste that counts in the end.

They look just lovely Andreas... and classic, too with the ganache. Crunchy goes so well with the smooth filling. Yay for the DBs...I never would have tried 'em either otherwise.

They look delicious! And chocolate is always the best filling! :)

Don't sound so down you did really well and they tasted good that is the most important point and the feet will come. Cheers from Audax in Australia.

Feet aren't known for tasting good anyway. I'm going to have to try this one just because you did.

They make me wish to re-enter Daring Bakers! Flavours are great, who cares for feet?
