It had been three months since I baked my last batch of macarons. I was afraid that I lost the knack of making macarons with the cute little feet. "What if I can't do it anymore? What if my macarons turn out flat and cracked?" I overcame my fears and decided to bake a batch last weekend. To be on the safe side, I chose a flavor that I'd tried before: dark chocolate earl grey. I carefully folded the egg white into the almond flour mixture, making sure I didn't overmix them. Then, I meticulously piped the rounds and waited patiently until they formed a skin. Fhewww... so far so good.. Now, it was time to bake them. I said my prayer, put a pan into the preheated oven, and set the timer to 15 minutes. Ughhh, 15 minutes of complete agony.
Kriiiiiiinnggggg.... Time's up! I slowly opened the oven door and........ perfect macaron feet!!!!! Yeayyy!!! What a relief.. I was confident and overly excited, so I made another batch. This time, English breakfast milk tea :) They turned out perfect too :D I was ecstatic! I started making the ganache filling for the two flavors and yuummmm, were they good.. I love the English breakfast milk tea flavor, it was a tad bit sweet for my taste because I used white chocolate, but it was delicious and fragrant regardless. The dark chocolate earl grey was great too but I was not too excited about it because I'd made it. Anyhow, pictures are below as usual :)
