For recipe, I always use my usual recipe adapted from La cuisine de Mercotte...
This month's challenge at Mac attack is "MacTell Me A Story!" and our favourite book as a child. Mine, I must confess, was the Arabian Nights "One thousand and one nights" = كتاب ألف ليلة وليلة. I basically grew up on this book.
Shahrazad ( شهرزاد ), who was married to the mad King Shahrayar (شهريار ) took me to her wonderful tales of the Arabian nights, a world where I enjoyed reading about Ali Baba, the Forty Thieves, Sindibad, Aladdin and the magic lamp and many other mystical creatures. I saw Shahrazad as a great heroine, who succeeded to entertain the mad Sultan with adventures, and who saved her own life as well as the female population through storytelling.
So I made these coffee macarons for Shahrazad and her King who was sleepless and restless, yet pleased with the prospect of hearing her endless stories. I’m submitting this post to MACTWEETS, a LOVELY BLOG devoted to MACARONS. Please check it out! The round up will be posted on the 15th of May.
