I guess oreos cookies are every one's favourite. They are certainly my family's fav cookies as they are always in stock in our pantry.
Saw these beautiful coal-like macarons at a popular bistro and was spurred to try making them.
I was glad I bought the right powder - bamboo charcoal powder - to give these beauties that glossy jet black. A little expensive though but gained satisfaction when the colors turned out as I had wanted (see my post on My Macarons - A Grey Issue dated 14 May 2011). Guess I had come a long, long way as far as my macs are concerned.
Only grouse is that I was too generous with the oreos cookies and thus the buttercream turned out thick and chunky. Well, can we ever get enough?
