We're out of Parisien Macarons in the fridge and the kids are feeling the loss... so yours truly thought, what a great idea to try out these Spanish Macaroons. It is a WHOLE lot more easier to make than the macarons. Ingredients are the same just a hundred times less fiddly to prepare. Completely done within 30 minutes. Results are as promised - sweet with tender chewiness. It's nice to be able to chew on the ground almonds with a hint of orange and cinnamon. I like it but the kids...well, let's just say they were very polite about it and gently suggested that I do the French macarons the next round.
