Daring Baker October Challenge
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.
