i am also on a quest for the perfect macaron recipe. i just wanted to say that i tried the Kate Zuckerman recipe --or i should say, a variation of it-- with day-old egg whites, and it worked. i haven't tried the Italian meringue method yet, but that's next on my list. Also, i had an experience with lopsided macarons just like the commentor above, and i believe that the culprit in my case was low oven temperature (and possibly understirred batter). Sugar and Tang's posts on macarons, address some of these problems.

Good luck with your chocolate macarons. The one that worked for me (although i find it a little on the sweet side) is D. Lebovitz's recipe.

Hi Felicia,
Yah, the pistachio ones actually turned out as they're supposed to I think. These did not use the sugar syrup method. I just added the confectioners' sugar/almond mixture to the beaten egg whites and tah-dah...It's much faster/simpler but not as foolproof as the sugar syrup method. The texture of the macaron is also different. It seems more moist to me. I've got some egg whites "aging" in the fridge right now getting ready for my chocolate macaron recipe. I recommend you try the pistachio recipe link. You may like it.

Hi Felicia,
You know, I honestly can't say I know for sure what the problem was that created lopsided feet. I have some ideas of what they might be, but who knows for sure? It might be because I needed to rotate the baking sheets to get even heat distribution. It could be that I needed to insulate the sheets with another sheet underneath. Or maybe the macaron gods needed a sacrifice or something! Just keep trying, I suppose! Good luck!
