This weekend my sister Missy and I tried our hands at Martha's macaroon recipe.
You can find it in her March 2014 issue.
The ingredients are pretty simple but we did have to locate a few items.
We diverted from Martha's recipe just a bit and used Almond four instead.
How's that for a perfect meringue?
So light and fluffy.
While the cookies were baking, Missy started on the butter cream filling.
Y'all.... I could eat this with a spoon... it's sooo good!
She did let me help just a little lol..
When you put us together...this happens.
It becomes one laugh fest and over the years, we've learned to just enjoy the journey!
So maybe the cookies were a bit lopsided and uneven.
So maybe we consumed a little more butter cream than allowed.
oh... the FUN!
And speaking of fun..
Do you remember back last year when my niece Brittany married her sweetheart?
Missy is happy to announce, she is going to be a Maw Maw!
That makes me one happy great aunt!
That also gave us an excuse to sharpen up on our macaroon skills.
Even though we still have months to go, we are eagerly planning the baby shower.
Oh the fun!!
