Does the above picture ever look like some of the macarons that come out of your oven? Over the past couple of years many a "macawrong" has come out of my oven! It definitely has been upsetting when I crack open the oven and instead of beautiful smooth macarons with lovely feet (the ruffled edges on a macaron shell) I see a pan of these shells there. In fact, just this week I experienced a batch of macawrongs myself.
The purpose of this post is to continue to encourage you all to keep baking those macarons. Yes, they can be finicky despite all the work we put into them. Let's do some digging into why these macarons look like this. My hubby Dan, an engineer by trade, who has seen me through this journey of macaron making will also help dissect what likely happened in these macawrongs.
