French Macaroons!

The very first time a saw these french macaroons on the internet, I fell in love and knew that I had to try one. As you may know, I love to bake so I decided to make some of my own. My first experience making it did not go very well. It turned flat and hard. After a while, I tried again and it was a success!
It takes some time to get used to making them so don't feel discouraged if you don't get it right the first time. Practice makes perfect.


 I followed this wonderful video that is step by step and very thorough:
