Edible Gold Leaf Macarons

Macarons are photogenic.  They really are.  The colors, the shape, the overall cuteness overload... the colors; did I mention the colors?.  (This Pinterest feed will keep you happy for a while.) But they sure do have to be made right.   Otherwise, they can turn out dry and near flavorless.  I'm lucky to live in a town with a French patisserie, so I get to treat myself to some tasty macarons that are also very very pretty.

I came across this recipe for edible gold leaf macarons and thought some of you out there might want to try it out; or if nothing else, you can stare at their loveliness.
