Bouchon Bakery - Macaron's
Another one bite's the cookie from the Bouchon Bakery book. These are some labor intensive cookies! The cookies have these thin crisp shells supporting a chewy interior. But the real star here is the french buttercream. Where has this been all my life. Its a custard whipped into a substance thats light as a cloud. I know the frosting on my birthday cake this year! I had no problems with the recipe for the cookies or french buttercream. Note, you will not use the all the whipped eggwhites. Id say you can get away with half a batch. I had alot left over. I have never had this cookie before and I must say it is the best I ever had. It lives up to the description in the book 100%.
