I tried to make these fancy pants macarons.

But through rough translation and not seeing any reference to “folding” into your eggwhites … okay, I overbeat. I didn’t fold. But I moved on. I stuck it in the oven to see what would happen.

This is what happened, my delicate, cookie turned into what Americans call, “macaroons.”. This is a coconut explosion of chewy goodness. I feel I’ve reconstructed history. Macaron – Macaroon … It’s some American ( like me ) trying to get all fancy and failing, but in a very tasty way. These macaroons were very edible. Mark my words. And I imagine making them in the future, but maybe dipping them in chocolate somewhat.
