Within the past few months, my coworker has started display something like an obsession with macarons. She finally ordered some online, but didn’t particularly like the citrusy flavors.
So, when her birthday came around last week, it was pretty clear what special treat I needed to make for the occasion. There was just one problem. I’d never made macarons before.
