    I’m totally on board with this recipe but I’m going to have to search for that “big” sugar. My better half is a Frenchman and I’m always making his favorites. ….that big sugar!
    One of my first posts was about macaron: https://atypical60.com/2015/02/13/macaroned-on-valentines-weekend-a-sweet-way-to-say-i-love-you/

    • Thanks Catherine, Macarons are so delicious. I hope you do find the sugar granules. They’re available everywhere here though my sister in law from Canada ended up stocking up here before she returned back home!
