After a long time away from making macarons, I baked some on Saturday. I decided to make vanilla shells and just use different-flavored fillings: root beer, Dalgona coffee, and pomegranate. They didn't turn out great, but at least they were edible!
My mom got The Messy Baker for Christmas.
It looked interesting, so I decided to look through it. Inside there was a recipe for homemade Oreos, which is something I’ve wanted to make for a while. We got the whole family together, and the younger ones “helped” by sifting flour (and making a mess) and pouring ingredients in bowls. These cookies ended up being an all day project, as they had to chill in the fridge. We also didn’t have a big enough baking sheet and had to do it in three batches. I didn’t exactly do a great job filling them. They are kind of sloppy, as you can see below.(more…)

Almost-Mandelbrot is almost biscotti. One thing is for sure. They both taste good!
