Then form small balls of dough about 2 to 3 cm in diameter (well spaced) on the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes

    I've never made homemade macaron but always wanted to! I have collected a couple of recipes over time, but I really like the look of this pastry - it just looks so yummy and crumbly ...
