This recipe has been following me for awhile. Popping (pun INTENDED) into my head at random times…or just when I was eating popcorn….and I figured now was as good of time as any to try it. This winter while I was laid up on the couch dreaming of a food blog with my foot in a cast, the idea of making a macaron with corn meal instead of almond flour popped into my head. …
Have you ever seen a more lighthearted macaron?
Lighthearted might be an odd descriptor for a pastry, but most of the time macarons–notoriously fussy and VERY French— have a habit of occupying only the most very sophisticated flavors. Delicious– but sophisticated. Salted caramel, lavender, hibiscus and honey, matcha! Don’t get me wrong, I love a fancy flavor. Unique combinations, toying with savory/salty/sweet combos is not something I shy from– but not today! No friends, today is all about sprinkles….
