Macaron of The Month: Strawberries & Cream

As mentioned last month, I began a new feature called, "Macaron of The Month".  This month's flavor is Strawberries & Cream.  So, I've gotten better, but there is still more work to be done.  Here are some things I learned this time around:
- Use almond flour NOT almond meal.  I used almond meal and although they tasted great you could see flecks of the almond skin throughout the macarons
-325 degrees is WAY too hot for these babies.  I tried baking them at 300 and I think that is the perfect temp.  Next time I'll leave them in for longer than 10 minutes.  My feet got stuck to the parchment/silicone mat.
The filling consisted of a vanilla buttercream and diced fresh strawberries.
All in all they tasted great.  Practice makes perfect.  Until next month, my friends!
