Let’s Review the March Baking Challenge
March 2021 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: French Macarons
The March 2021 Sally’s Baking Challenge was our 50th monthly challenge. We chose the most requested challenge recipe for the celebration, French Macarons, and gave participants full creative control over the flavors and colors. You could use our recipe for them or any French macaron recipe you prefer. We were so delighted to see so many entries, especially for one of the most difficult challenge recipes we’ve ever assigned. There were so many incredible flavors, shapes, and colors! Here are some that stood out: cookies & cream, Easter egg shaped, ombré rainbow shells, lemon & lavender, cookie dough buttercream filling, Nutella filling, heart shaped, cereal milk frosting filling, plus sprinkles, painted on designs, edible glitter garnish, and more. (I’m so intrigued and want to try my hand at all of these variations!!)
We hope you are very proud for trying, regardless of how “perfect” your cookies turned out. What matters most is taking that bold step to tackle something new. We gathered as many French macaron emailed photo entries as we could and included them below. Let’s admire all this hard work!
