Macarons?

I feel like I’m completely missing out on this macaron craze. Should I jump in?

Here’s what I want to know:

1. What do macarons taste like? Are they really that great?

2. Are they hard to make?

3. Is it worth making them just so I can blog about it?

4. Is the craze dying down, and I ought to skip this one?

5. If you made them, what filling would you use? I’m thinking Nutella.

    Wow, thanks for informing me that there’s a macaron craze. I had no idea. I don’t know how they taste, but I have had something similar in structure–an imported cookie we got from World Market. I didn’t like it. But, then, a macaron might be great. I thought it was interesting how the article really stressed how an amateur probably couldn’t do them right.

    Also, your blog page is now very colorful and fun-looking with the variety of photos you have!

    Macaroons are generally meringue-like, and the ones I’ve had have always been made with almond paste and coconut. Confession: I don’t really like them, although they look very pretty.

    I love macaroons! But these macarons, good question.
