Black sesame marcaron
My 1st attempt and a very last minute project. As I only picked up my courage at this last minute. This was my 1st patch. Doing better for sure for 2nd patch. Recipe adopted from here.
I wanted to submit this post to aspiring bakers- march marcaron madness. Too bad I clicked post at 11.59pm but it showed 1 april for this post.
Good also, I can share more about this experience. This was my 1st attempt and definitely the not as difficult as I thought experience.
As I always find a lot of marcarons too sweet, so i reduce sugar to 20g instead of 40g.
1st patch, I did not cut the Parchment hole big enough, that's why my macaroon look like Indian sweets, hee!
My 2nd patch is definitely better, as I cut a bigger hole and the shape is better. The taste and texture is to my surprise, good! For 1st attempt, this is definitely a big encouragement.
