Macaron fail #2: Wrinkly macarons

Feeling more than a bit sheepish right now… 😅

After doing the full nine yards of macaron-making, my heart sank when I noticed wrinkles were forming while I was baking them. I was almost racking my brains out trying to figure out what went wrong—humidity too high? Nope, humidity is at the usual 40-50%. Over-mixing? Nope, in fact, the batter was a bit under-mixed. Then as I was sitting down, consigned to believe it was just one of those days, I saw the answer staring me right in the face: there on the package of the cashew nuts I ground for the TPT stood the phrase «røstet i rapsolje» (roasted in canola oil) 😂

Oh well… I can try again tomorrow. In the meantime, soft and chewy peanut-cashew cookies, anyone?
