macaron biscotti

When you pipe a tray of macarons, there are bound to be at least a few, maybe more if by “you” I mean “I”, shells that bake up too big, too small, blob-shaped, footless or for whatever reason wonky. You can eat them on the sneak and destroy the evidence (my go-to method for dealing with them) or you can make Macaron Biscotti with them and serve them up with tea. I’ve never seen twice-baked mac shells before this, but the idea is neat and easy— dip once-baked shells in melted butter and rebake. I didn’t even bother to melt any butter…I have a small container of ghee that I keep at room temp in the cooler months and brushed that on both sides of my shells. They turn very bronzed in the oven and are super crunchy through-and-through. Macarons with a suntan.

  1. I love the colour of these – they are intriguing.

  2. Macarons with a suntan is very funny. Looks like they went well with coffee.

  3. These are so pretty! I wondered about brushing them with room temp butter as well – less mess. Don’t know I’d make these on purpose but they are definitely a fancy way of presenting not perfect macs!
