Macarons vs Macaroons vs Macron
Turns out you can’t cook a macaron without someone referring to it as a macaroon.￼ So today I decided to forgo the quest for the perfect macaron and cook some macaroons. Especially after learning (too late) that you shouldn’t cook macarons if it’s raining outside.

I would ask which is everyone’s favorite, but it seems that most of the women I’ve talked to will pick the French President every time.
The first time I attempted these it was a complete mess. They all cracked, no feet, no uniformity etc. Then I was told about this troubleshooting website for Macarons:
The next batch were the Strawberry ones Top Right, then the Blueberry ones Top Left.
Still not prize winning, but edible nonetheless.
I won't pretend to share a unique fool proof macaron recipe, but rather suggest a few YouTube videos that I found helpful:
