Macarons

Almost there and it's on with bake number six of #TwitterBakeAlong and the Gent's afternoon tea. We just couldn't make an afternoon tea without trying the 'patisserie du moment', the rather regal French macaron. That's right, this in not a macaroon! They're expensive and really difficult to make, well only the first part of that is true if you don't make them yourself. Using a foolproof recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction we created simple pastel green shells before filling with sweet vanilla buttercream and delicious raspberry jam. If you can keep your hands off them then they keep rather well and are gloriously chewy in the middle.
