French Macarons

Another attempt at macarons....
 I filled them with dulce de leche made from sweetened condensed milk.  
I just put the can in a pot of water and let it simmer for 3 hours and got this lovely brown goodness! 

I think I am getting better.  Still think I may be mixing it a little too long.  But I did get a nice smooth shell and those pretty little ruffled feet. 
Yay me!


Nice tutorial and recipe here.


  1. Chelly, I am totally impressed! They look Paris bakery-perfect! I have given up all attempts to make these!

    Just lovely!

    1. Thanks Susan! Each time I get a little better! It is an ongoing process. I am bound and determined to perfect these little buggers!
