Rose Macarons with Vanilla Yogurts Butter Cream
I wanted to make it actually for two reasons, first because I miss Paris… it has been like what??? 7 years since last time… it used to be one of my favorite weekend getaways when I lived in Holland, secondly I miss my only sister, last time I met her, was in London, before she departed for her honeymoon to Italy, almost 1 and half years ago… My baby sister (27 years old, not so “baby” anymore but still a baby sister to me 😛 ) loves Macarons.
So this pictures of macarons have 2 titles too, one : My sister and Me, two : Paris & Me 😀
As for the recipe I used “the one” from Tartellete’s , but I “studied” many recipes and watched a couple of movies to prepare my self for the “battle” 😉 It’s my first time, it’s far away from perfect, even from the same batch I put half on the silpat, came out with legs, the other half on baking paper they cracked…. and piping it out, I know for sure I need a lot of practices in that area too 🙂 but for the mean time I just enjoy those macaroon’s legs 🙂
Oh… and, I used rose water flavor for the shells and simply vanilla and a tablespoon of hard yogurts (lebaneh) to give a bit of sour taste to the butter cream.
UPDATE: I’m sending this as my entry to the Mad for macarons in May, because I think Helen of Tartelette should get a present for allowing us all to use her recipes 🙂
