Midnight Macaroons

I don't know if it's the sugar rush from taste-testing, or if it's because I figured out how to use the self-clean cycle on my oven. A revelation! Next time I broil some eggplant, I hope I won't have to have the sheet pan ready to fan the smoke detector.

I couldn't sleep, so I decided I would try to make some macaroons. After my pathetic attempt this summer, I thought I'd try to do it again with the full experience of a baking class backing me.

This time, I did it!

Piped and ready to bake:

Dried out as much as possible, but I'm still going to sit it in a warm oven overnight:

Time to attempt the Bryan Voltaggio macaroon again. That's what inspired me and got me in trouble the first time.
