    What kind of Pastry Bag do you suggest?? I have the Wilton tip set with the desposible bags and am looking for something that lasts longer. Thanks

    I want to make the macaroons, which calls for almond flour. Someone in my family is allergic to nuts what can i substitute? Thanks

    Nate — You can try seed flour, or chickpea flour, though I can’t say for sure they will work as well. The cookies will still probably taste pretty good, though!

    I almost considered adding in regular food coloring drops, but read these in time! :D
    also I read somewhere that you can also create beautiful forest green macarons by using green tea powder… And if anyone is allergic to almonds and nuts, might as well skip making these since that is the main component of the sweet.

    I tried the macaroon recipe, and it tasted pretty good, but it was flat and didn’t rise, so no feet. :( any ideas or suggestions on where I went wrong? Was the whites not stiff enough? Over mix maybe? I’m waiting until the next opportunity to bake to try again.

    Also I have a crazy question, I saw powdered freeze dry baby food at the store. If I found something besides green peas, could that work in the macaroon recipe?

  7. PastryPal says:

    Jackie — I’m thinking that yes, it might actually work!

  8. PastryPal says:

    Jackie — Your guesses as to what happened are good and I urge you to try again.
