Macarons is a lovely little surprise. Ulysses Press consistently tucks fun cookbooks into this little gift-sized impulse buy format. With beautiful pictures and detailed instructions, the book presents to a very high level.

On the other hand, as you can see by my headline, the next time I want traditional, French-style macarons I will gladly pay a professional baker or pastry chef to make them for me. It will be worth it! I use puff pastry in my kitchen, bake breads from scratch and even craft an impressive Pot de Crème. Despite my years-earned skills, this little book does not earn a permanent place on my shelf.

My taste-testers all loved the results. So don’t get me wrong, we had very tasty cookies. And they looked nothing like the desired results. Here’s what I learned:

*If a recipe comes with pages of troubleshooting, I won’t make it at home
*When I have hard time finding the correct equipment at the local restaurant supply store, leave it to the real pros (the correct pastry tip was trickier than expected)
*Some recipes do not pay off for me in the time vs. money equation

That said, other qualities of the book are wonderful. The Rose and Lavender Buttercream recipes literally stunned people to silence. I heard comments such as You’re a goddess and Incredibly elegant from the people at the meeting who noshed on the cookies as if they hadn’t eaten in days. My favorite part of the book however, was kind of a side-bar recipe.

The Lavender Buttercream recipe contained instructions for making your own Lavender Water. Most stores carry rosewater these days. If nothing else you can find an ethnic market that sells this product. As a serious lavender fanatic I loved having these instructions. Although it calls for fresh stems of lavender, I used culinary lavender buds. It will be a few months before fresh is back in season here in Northern California. For any lavender lover you’ll find many uses for the resulting infusion. Cosmetic recipes that call for rose water…use this instead! Maybe even brine chicken in it for a twist on an herbs de provence flavor.

Whether you decide to tackle the industrial task of producing your own Macarons, do consider infusing plain frosting with rose or lavender water next time you’re looking for a fresh flavor idea. During gloomy winter it’s like a breath of spring to brighten your palate and day.
