Daring Bakers: No Feet + No Shine = Amaretti
The 2009 October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Ami S. She chose macarons from Claudia Fleming’s The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern as the challenge recipe.
These were supposed to macarons.
The uncooked batter looked fine:
Except they didn't grow feet and the baked tops looked like the surface of the moon.
I have made macarons before with better results. While I still didn't get the shiny tops then, I did get well-developed feet.
Until I figure out where I went wrong, I'll be a bit gun-shy about making these again, which is a shame.
Even though they tasted fine, but I decided not to waste my time or the ingredients to fill a failure.
So, this year there will be no Halloween macarons.
