hey baby, it's the fourth of july.

fourth of july berry macarons

je suis une américain, y'all, but for this independence day i bring you hazelnut macarons with an italian buttercream flavoured with vanilla bean, and topped with fresh raspberries and blueberries. i used clement's recipe almost to a 'T' and found it easy to follow, with successful results. don't be afraid of french cookies, kids!

have a great day whatever you're doing--i will as it's my birthday, toooooo

(i'll be on kxlu tonight from 11pm to midnight PST)
