Coffee Chicory Macarons & A MAC attack!


The twitter world was recently flooded with Mac attack SOS and whatnot! I had made Macs before and it was a tiny success( I got feet!! YAY! ;D ) and therefore when the MAC attack gang was formed, I was quite OK with it. Had lil confidence left in me from the previous attempt. So I went ahead with the MAC Queen Helen's recipe (again!! ;D).

It all began with Aparna and Deeba! Then many more joined in including myself ;)
I wanted to try some filling for it though but I somehow din't feel like doing it then. Since the round up was on 15 Sept, I thought I had plenty of time to make another batch with filling but ALAS my mom came up with the idea of starting my trousseau shopping due to which nothing happened on the MAC front as I had planned! Hmph! So here are the macs minus the filling :)

The recipe for the macaron can be found here. Helen, you are the BEST!! xoxo I din't have a proper nozzle to pipe it out so I used my nozzle holder instead. And so my Macs were slightly bigger in diameter than mentioned in the original recipe.

The macaron sans the filling was DELICIOUS to the last bite and I so badly regret for not filling it with even a plain ganache...they would have been a killer for sure!! Hmph! But there's always a next time! :D

A big thanks to Jamie who is doing the wonderful round-up for us. She has been a wall to all of us! xx Check out her blog on 15 Sept to see the work of the MAC attack gang! :)

Have a good day!
