Not sure about that...btw if you're making the traditional French pastry (cookie), it's spelled macaron. icon_biggrin.gif

They're 2 different things. For macarons, you must use the blanched ground almonds.

I was searching for posts and threads on "macaron" (the french pastry) and came upon your post. Do you mind sharing the recipe on the almond can and also your experience if you made it?
Thanks in advance... icon_smile.gif
