macarons: take two

After making my first batch of macarons a little too crispy, I couldn't wait to try to whip up another batch to see if I could achieve the correct texture.

This batch: chocolate batter. Yum!

 I make the macs about double the size of the first batch, my logic was that the first batch were too crispy because I didn't make them big enough for the recipe's allotted baking time.

As I waited for the macs to dry/settle, I got to work making the fillings. Half would be filled with raspberry preserves, the other half: peanutbutter buttercream!

The texture was perfect, and the fillings were delicious! These did not last very long, we gobbled them up pretty quickly!
