DIY: French macarons, it's totally worth it
By Edible Times on September 11, 2012
Five years ago the craze was cupcakes. Now it’s French macarons. And like those crazy cupcakes averaging $3 a pop, a single French macaron can cost you a pretty penny (or tens or hundreds). Most recently, as I can’t resist taste testing the new macaron in town, I bought 10 to share with my people from a pastry shop in Tampa, Florida. It cost me $18.75, and these were actually on the lower end of the macaron price scale at $1.90 a piece.
And that’s when it hit me – almost two dollars for one silly little macaron? For almonds, sugar and egg whites?!? You can bake them yourself, buttercream and all, in less than an hour for a fraction of the price.
