I actually experimented a little around Christmas, and it wasn't too bad a start! I made just "plain ole macaron" cookies and filled them with some salted caramel that I made a few days prior. I've read and heard so much about how difficult they are and... I think that's what they tell people so they can charge so much. Ha. It really is kind of a science-project-meets-kitchen-implements exercise, I'll give them that. And PERFECTING the macaron... another story all together. But I started where I always start... with Martha Stewart.
