Firstly, no you are not seeing double, parts of a similar post appeared and disappeared due to technical issues a few weeks back, however I can confirm this post is now definitely real!
A few months back whilst I was a bit under the weather, the lovely Helen from Fuss Free Flavours braved our local transport system and came to visit me, bringing with her some delicious treats, including some very good scotch eggs!
Amongst our little lunch feast, Helen also very kindly gave me a copy of an elegant little book simply called Macarons, by Annie Rigg, and after baking my first and successful batch of Macarons, I am now very happy to confirm I have an additional copy to give away to one lucky UK based reader!
The book is perfect and petite, a little like the macarons themselves! It contains a selection of mouthwatering recipes and combinations, including step by step instructions on how to make and fill them, I can highly recommend it!
These were our first macarons - of course we had to dye them pink but you could use any colouring you wish for! Prior to this I'd never made them, or tried before but am a definite convert! They are so light and delicious, a little time consuming but the results are worth it!
Its very easy to enter the competition - just leave me a comment below telling me your favourite sweet treat!
