The Child stole cookies from a doof who didn't share.

William and Sonoma have odd ideas about "sweet moments."

"Remember when your brother wouldn't let you have a turn on his new bike, and you cut the break lines? We remember. We remember everything, and if you pay enough, every slight can turn into delicious gold in your memories, as well as cash in our pockets. Remember, living well and out of the means of those who ever slighted you is the BEST revenge."

A bit high, but not as high as one would think in the high-end patisserie market.  I regularly see them for 2-3 Euro ea. at the shops.

Second, they totally missed an opportunity by not calling these things "Chewbaccarons".


Macaroons are a different, coconut-based treat.

I don't understand why they are named after France's President.  I thought I remembered Macrons being around when I was a kid.

No way. No one has ever used the Starwars franchise as a blatant cash grab.

They actually are fairly difficult to make... but, that's an excellent recipe as it has all sorts of tips built into the directions, such as mix on low speed and a test for stiff peaks, and adhering the parchment paper to the pan. It requires a piping bag, and 24 hours to "bloom, and you actually have to have almond flour on hand that hasn't gone rancid.

I think they're kind of a pain in the ass to make.

Nobody else watches fargo, or my comment was 100% unamusing?

Why not Both?

If you don't respond I will assume you are either dead or in jail.

those claiming how easy macarons are to make are forgetting how long it took them to master a piping bag, learning to use silpats, being careful to let things set as long as they need to, monitoring bake time and temp.

macarons are expensive in bakeries because they are a labor intensive PITA treat. do what i did, marry someone who bakes really well. i've saved tens of thousands of dollars in bakery purchases.

yes, i am fat. mmm hmmm.

4 bucks USD for a farking fancy cookie? You could buy a pack of farkin' Oreos for the same price and get the same sugar addiction fix.
