cocoa macarons.

I made these with some leftover almond flour. Added 3 Tbsp cocoa powder to the basic macarons recipe.

I sifted the almond flour this time, but ran out of patience when it came time to sift the cocoa powder. I didn't have the patience to let them "dry" for 1 hour either, so i piped them out & threw them right in the oven.

& they came out fine.

It dawned on me that I really don't like macarons that much. The taste, I mean. They're just ok.

You won't find me hunting down the best macarons that money can buy, but if i ever get to Europe I'll be making a special pilgrimage to Brittany for Kouign Amann.
