Un grand macaron de framboise!

A large raspberry macaron!

Macarons are a challenge to make with careful attention 
to the humidity, the age of the eggs, the balance of heat in the oven, 
the phase of the moon.

However, I cannot imagine
 how many attempts it would take 
in order to get a perfect one of this size.  
At least the failures become "family macarons" 
and no one complains!

(just kidding about the phase of the moon)

You know the Keats line, "A thing of beauty is a joy forever"? Well, in the case of this yummy-looking thing of beauty, I doubt it. (Care to share?)
