Re:Almond Macarons

Although I found the video useful in terms of technique for the feet of the macaroon, I found the recipe itself to be un-inspiring. The beauty of the French macaroon is the unique flavors that are produced. Both the butter cream and the lemon curd were unsuitable companions for the delicate macaroon cookie. The lemon curd over powered the cookie and the butter cream was dull. In addition, the lemon curd held too much moisture and compromised the cookie, after only 30 minutes I was left with a soggy mess that I was barely able to get from the plate to my mouth without the cookie disintegrating. I have had more inspired success from the bloggers out there, I wonder the amount of taste testing performed on this recipe. Disappointed. Un-noteworthy.
