French Macaroons

I love mommy moments that involve cookies and coffee.
Really does life get any better?
I was on the fence about my opinion of french macaroons for a while... they just look so lovely but they didn't taste at all like I was expecting.
That being said, I have finally made my decision on these cookies.
I love them.
I love them too much... see those green ones up in the first pic? yah, I ate the entire batch in 24 hours... sick, I know, but true.
I did share some with the boys, but Zac totally had to beg for one. Even after the begging, I was still hesitant in giving him one because I knew that meant I also needed to sacrifice one to Eli... yep, I'm that mom.
The mom that puts my need for sweets above my children's needs for sweets. I tell myself it will make them a better person if I eat all their goodies for them. That they'll grow up wanting apples and oranges while I hide in the bathroom with the cookie jar stuffing my face...
mmmm... I do so love my sweets!

The recipe I used for the green macaroons can be found here & the recipe I used for the white ones can be found here. Try them both! They're both great recipes.

I'll be brave and admit that I've never, ever tried a macaroon...is that awful? I don't know...either way, your boys are cute and I can't wait to read more.

I'm so happy you tried the French Macaroon recipe from my blog and liked it! I love it myself and can completely understand how you can eat a batch within a 24 hour period. It's quite easy to do. :) Especially with this recipe. Thanks for linking back to me. http://cherishedhandmadetreasures.blogspot.com/
