So, I just saw Marie Antointette, and in it she eats delicious looking macarons from Luderee. Well, I've never tried them so does anyone have a recipe for macarons, especially a pistachio flavored one? and Are they worth it to make? Thanks so much.
LOVED that movie! Unfortunately I can't find any half decent macarons anywhere in Toronto (suggestions anyone?) so I had to settle on making them myself- so I did some serious all-night blogging and invested in a few cookbooks (like Paris Sweets by Dorie Greenspan which is fabulous btw) and here are two recipes which I think are worth attempting:
and David Lebovitz's chocolate version:
for the record, I haven't tried either one yet, but David's version looks slightly more reliable, considering all the different attempts...
