The 2009 October Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Ami S. She chose macarons from Claudia Fleming’s The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern as the challenge recipe. Ami's blog is titled Baking without Fear, and I did indeed need some courage to tackle this month's challenge.
This is only my third creation as a member of the Daring Kitchen and so far the last 2 recipes are helping me touch base with my roots.
