Cookie Carnival: Hazelnut Macarons

Another month, another cookie carnival! This month's selection was Hazelnut Macarons. I was super excited about these because I have wanted to try my hand at macarons ever since I started my blog. I was happy that I would be "forced" to try them!

While my macarons aren't the prettiest and don't have the traditional feet, I think they turned out great. I really enjoyed this recipe and thought it was a great choice!

Thanks to Kate from The Clean Plate Club for hosting this fantastic group! You can find the recipe here.

(Sorry for such a short post... We just finished cleaning up after Eric's birthday party and I wanted to get this up. Pics from the party to come on Monday!)
