I am familiar with Parisian Macarons which I have yet to make but this is my first try at Basque Macarons. Made from a few ingredients; egg whites, almond flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt but with multiple steps. The egg whites are divided in half some whipped to stiff peaks and the other mixed with the flour mixture. The cookies are also baked in multiple steps, first at 400 degrees for 8 minutes then at 350 degrees for 3-4 minutes. Even with all the steps I found this to be a simple recipe I could execute well. This plate of cookies went to a dinner party in which they quickly disappeared.
