Mum - you asked me this week if I could move on from the macaroons....and finally, I will. Phew. But first I must say that I made a third batch. And, had I bothered to sieve the ground almonds rather than not, they would have looked less lumpy-rustic. Still, they did look good, only I now think that simple-to-make-bog-standard macaroons using Nigella's recipe, tastes so much better than these airy, sweet, faffy, piped, filled creations. Yes, they look good but they just don't seem to satisfy my almond cravings. Even after eating 10-20 with fillings ranging from lemon curd to peanut butter, they just weren't hitting the mark. Is there something wrong with me?
