Chef Elise Macur, a Culinary Institute of America graduate who teaches at the Ulster BOCES Adult Career Education Center, recently led a class through a very yummy few hours of “Oo-la-la” French macaron cookie making. The delicious session was the latest installment of the popular Ulster BOCES “Chef Du Jour” series.

To make these Parisian sandwich cookies, the bakers-in-training learned the art of sifting, double-boiling, folding, and piping. The finished treats included chocolate peanut butter, salted caramel, vanilla, orange creamsicle, strawberry cheesecake, and blueberry lemon.
