I Tried the Impossible
The first thing I tried was a recipe for saffron and pumpkin macarons. I substituted sweet potato for the pumpkin because we had it lying around. Macarons are something I've been too scared to make. They're so cute, colorful, and intimidating. Particularly the egg white/cookie part. This recipe was just too good to pass up.
I have to say that I was surprised and proud of the results. For a first attempt I think they turned out great. The saffron/sweet potato combination was surprising and perfectly complimentary. The cookie got a little soft after they sat. But the gooeyness worked.
