Ah the inevitable pride before the fall.
This is what macaroons SHOULD look like:
I made the recipe according removing the jam, and adding in some lime rind. Oh, and made one crucial substitution: instead of icing sugar, I used granulated.
You know what happens to French style macaroons when you use granulated sugar? You get meringues. Not macaroons.

Nope, these bad boys looked NOTHING like they should have. They didn't rise properly; the sugar didn't dissolve; they tasted gritty (again, the sugar). Disaster.
I swear though, Martha's recipe (when followed correctly), is fantastic. You can find it after the jump.
Just be sure to use icing sugar.
