A Baking Adventure: Macarons

Cinnamon Macarons with a Nutella filling. 

This was my first attempt at making macarons. 
My dear friend Katie and I took the challenge on to make these after seeing some in a new bakery that opened up downtown. Katie has tried a bunch of different macarons. 
And the ones we made were the first I had ever had. 
So I am slightly bias when I say they turned out pretty well,
you know because I have nothing to compare these to. 

They are definitely really sweet because of the Nutella filling. 
But I figured that it was best to take on one challenge at a time.
 This go around we focused on making the cookie and not make a filling. 

I found this recipe here on one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess. 

And I followed these baking instructions and suggestions.  

It was a lot of fun making something new!!! 
And I think that I will probably make these again, 
mainly because there are lots of options for making them colorful!!! 
And who doesn't love colorful food!!!!
