I wanted SOMETHING new today. I thought it would be a cut or color, but after a snit once because my stylist cut my hair too short for the umpteenth time, I quit going to her for a 2 years. So now when I ask for her to cut my hair short, she prevaricates, a lot. So she trimmed and highlighted it. But I had not given up on the new thing. When I was in Paris, one of the Pierre Herme macarons I had was apricot and pistachio. I have been thinking about that macaron, a lot. Several weeks ago I purchased shelled and lightly salted pistachios. A couple of days ago I broke eggs, separated, weighed and sifted the almond flour and powdered sugar. Tonight I did my best to recreate them, but with peaches instead. I started and then began to wonder if I had any way to make them orange, but I had some yellow food coloring along with red, so I was set. I cooked, whipped, and mixed, toasted, pureed and cooked some more. They puffed up just like they are supposed to. They have lovely dainty little feet, as I am told they are to have. They are pretty and they taste great. They may be my favorite macarons yet, they have that sweet salty tension that I like, a lot. All I can say is Pierre Herme you better watch out, because these are good, a lot!
