Mastering the art of the French Macaron is a challenge. The process itself isn't hard, but it does take practice to make the technique perfect. There was so many ways in which you can screw up your recipe and technique if you're not careful. Otherwise, your macarons won't be smooth, round, and fluffy. There are a lot of websites and I suggest doing your homework and watching videos before trying to tackle these.
I used the Martha Stewart version of this recipe. I also printed out a template which can be found at the Food Nouveau site.
Here is my result after just a second try at making these babies!
