It may make more sense that you make French macarons by using the French method, which is the traditional way of mixing the meringue with almond flour and powdered sugar. I’ve used this method all along, simply because I didn’t know of other methods until recently.

I like giving practical gifts. Meaning something really usable or edible. It could be a little easier for myself as I am a baker. And the fact that everyone loves home-made food really encourages me to bake and pack and give. Most importantly, your gift receiver will never have to throw away or donate your gift right away.
If there is one type of cookies that no one dislikes, I think it should be shortbread. Buttery, crumbly, simple. Almost no reason to not fall in love with shortbread. We always have a jar in our house because it takes no time to make, and the ingredients can’t be more basic: butter, sugar, vanilla and flour.
