Basque Macarons - Tuesdays with Dorie

I love finding quick and delicious ways to use up leftovers - egg whites in this case - and this recipe is one of them. The only other ingredients required are almond flour and sugar, and cinnamon if you wish.
The cookies aren't much to look at but they have wonderful texture with a crisp exterior and a moist chewy centre. I wish I had omitted the optional cinnamon to allow the delicate almond flavour to shine...next time. 

The recipe is from Dorie Greenspan's book, Baking Chez Moi, made for Tuesdays with Dorie.

Smoothest, Silkiest, Creamiest, Tartest Lime Tart - Tuesdays with Dorie

The name says it all. This is truly the smoothest, silkiest, creamiest, tartest lime tart I've ever had, and I loved it!
The berry variation included the extra sweetness of plump, juicy blueberries that balanced the tartness of the lime filling perfectly.
