TWD - Basque Macarons


For Tuesday with Dorie this week, I chose to make Basque Macarons.  These are biscuits made with egg whites, almond meal, sugar, cinnamon and salt.

I spooned the batter onto the trays for baking, as I found that the batter just stuck in a cookie scoop.

The resulting cookies look quite good, despite not being as showy as their colourful Parisian cousins, and they taste delicious.  I think two biscuits sandwiched together with icecream would be perfect.

To see what everyone else made this week, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Ooh these sound good and I have too many egg whites at the moment!

I like that they are less fancy than the french cousins - suits me fine - look quite tasty

They do look good, and I love the idea of an ice cream sandwich!

Your cookies look so relaxed and waiting to be picked up and and enjoyed.

Ice cream makes everything taste better. These cookies are not a looker but they taste good. I was worried about taking them to the party but they disappeared.

I see repeated comments about using these with ice cream haha! Just might have to try that when I make these next!
