I could speak infinitely about my love for raspberries. I buy them every week, year round. I eat them out of hand, I bake with them, I look at them, I admire them.
My never-ending quest to find the easiest macaron recipe recently took me here. Foolproof macarons? Well, yes indeed. They were perfect little pink rounds with perfect feet (the little ruffle on the edge of the macaron - proof that you've succeeded). They are sandwiched together with the most delicious raspberry buttercream made with only 3 ingredients: butter, icing sugar and pureed raspberries. No food colouring, just unadulterated raspberry juice.
Are you intimidated to try making these little jewels? Have confidence in yourself and try this recipe. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
PS I brushed to tops of my macarons with edible gold dust for decoration.
