Shahrazad or Chahrasad, who was married to the mad King Shahrayar 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.
For recipe, I always use my usual recipe adapted from La cuisine de Mercotte, the Queen of French Macarons!.
