French Macaroons

In the latest issue of Martha there's a spread on the loveliest Parisian Macaroons. I read it and got to thinking, what's the point of having wedding favors if they're not something unique? If we're going to invest money in something as frivolous as favors, shouldn't they be something our guests can really savor?I saw these delicate little cookies and instantly pictured them packaged in kraft boxes with ribbon for our wedding. I know they can get pretty spendy to buy pre-made, but luckily Martha shares a detailed recipe with her readers.

Here's the plan: make a batch of raspberry macaroons. See how they turn out. DIY favors?

Macaroons! Totally what I'd pick as a favour. I dream about Laduree's amazing macaroons...

Now I'm depressed.

Not a bad idea. At least you don't have to worry about making them fresh that day like most cookies. I hate stale cookies!
