Completely understand your feelings!  Perfect macarons should be fully appreciated and admired.

Congratulations.  I had to make (ahem) a few of those to get is right.  It's really all in the technique.

I have made those 4 times - 4 different batches. Still can't get nice foot. I guess I need to keep trying like for 20 more times.

Are they supposed to be kind of raw - wet inside?

moist, but def not raw/wet.  The batter is much loosier than you think it should be.

Oh, mine were kind of on the raw side. I figured that the batter supposed to be runny.

They should be chewy inside but not runny.  That may be why you're not getting the feet.  I get more hollows than anything else.  The key is in the viscosity, mixing and not overmixing.  It takes a lot of successful batters to figure out what you're looking for.

Thanks for the tips. My daughters keep asking me to learn to make perfect macarons. They have been eating all the rejects.
