I don't know why anyone would focus on pictures for a cookbook review. What matters to me is that the recipes work! Who cares about what the thing looks like! But I digest...after trying French Macaroons for the first time at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel Easter Sunday Brunch, I became obsessed with this culinary work of art. I had no idea what they were, and I was too embarrassed to ask. I stumbled upon an article in a magazine about them, and purchased some from a small bakery in Louisville, KY. They weren't as good as the Waldorf, but they did the trick. So then began my quest to make them. I had purchased "Le Petit Macaroon" and attempted four of the recipes in that book, all of which failed miserably. I then purchased "Mad About Macaroons" which fared even worse. I even bought the Laudere Sugar cookbook, but was too broken hearted to try. I went to Paris and bought some Macaroons from Laudere, but they still weren't as good as the Waldorf's. I stumbled across this magical literary godsend at a Home Goods store in Charleston, West Virginia. I thought to myself "all I need is another useless macaroon cookbook to get my hopes up", but since the recipes were in cups and teaspoons, and not grams and ounces, I decided to go for it and I'm glad I did. When I peeked at my macaroons after five minutes in the oven, and they had feet, I started to dance! I have tried two recipes from this book so far, and they have been awesome! I cook at a temp of 315, I use the "airbake" cookies sheets, I process my sugar in the food processor to get the super fine sugar (I can't find castor sugar in West Virginia), I do age my egg whites 24 hours, and then bring them to room temp before I bake. I double the vanilla, and probably would all extract favors (I always double the vanilla, it's just so good).Read more ›

Our first batch of macaroons were perfect and based on everything I have read about making them, I certainly was not expecting that!

A great book, the only one you will need to make great macaroon cookies. If you need additional tips, you will find on utube. My first batch, I had the "little feet" on my cookies. Can't wait to bake again. I would recommend purchasing a macaroon mat, the size of the cookies noted on the mat. Can purchase from Amazon.

I learned to make macarons with this book, and did it perfectly on my first try. This book does a good job boosting your confidence and doesn't make the process seem too fussy. I have tried other recipes from another book, and they did not work as well as the recipes in this one.

Fantastic book! Tried using the recipes online for macaroons about 3 times and they were okay but not perfect. Using this book for the first time made them perfect and the feet comes out just right! Book is a miracle worker.

very easy to read, straightforward instructions with helpful tips! I like that it also has a page for the needed equipment. I wished it had more pictures but like I said it is simple and easy to follow so it is really good.
