Macarons can be tricky and require patience and just the right recipe to produce the perfect treat. This recipe got it right! Instructions for this kit were well explained and easier to follow than any previous macaron recipe I have made in the past. After trying to perfect these for years and failing at one or two recipes because they didn't do well at explaining certain techniques this was a very welcome change. The macaron mat included in the kit also made it very easy to pipe perfectly uniform shells and took some of the guess work out of the process. Not only did the easy to follow instructions yield beautiful smooth tops with just the right texture but it was downright delicious. The lavender flavor was just right and not in the least overwhelming. This was evidenced by the fact that our 6 year old couldn't get enough of these macarons. The singular downside to any macaron is that they are gone so quickly when they took so much time and patience to make.
