coconut-honey caramel French macaroon...



I have a project of making three different French macaroons in green, purple and white for my friend. I'm thinking about green tea with red bean, lavender with honey and lychee with raspberry-rose.

I'll have to bake these French macaroons in the oven without a fan. To make sure they will bake well and turn out right at that day, I baked a small bat of coconut French macaroon shells at 300 degrees F for 7 minutes today. These shells were 3/4" diameter. They turned out great in color, texture and shape. I'm going to use them for the next project tomorrow--stay tune!
