Mrs. Potts Macarons - Run #22

Something just hit me.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast was released in 1991.

I was 7.

Really?!  Considering I'm almost 29 years old, that's a long time ago.  To this day, I blast the Disney channel on Pandora and 100% of the time, at least one song is heard from Beauty and the Beast....and 100% of the time, you can find me singing along.  Like I said before, don't even get me started!  I adored this era in Disney Animation.  The Little Mermaid.  Aladdin.  All in a few years.  The songs accompanying the movies were amazing as well.  Come on, Celine, Luther, Peabo.

"Beauty and the Beast" sang by Angela Lansbury is so memorable because her voice is so unique and distinguishable.  Speaking of voices, who else was floored when they found out the voice of Lumiere was provided by Jerry Orbach - the actor who played Baby's father in Dirty Dancing?  I was!

But I digress...

Belle in her gorgeous golden gown and the Beast looking handsome in his blue coat dancing in that amazing ballroom is one of my favorite Disney scenes ever.  Romantic and beautiful.

I made a macaron in honor of Mrs. Potts - while the colors came out a bit too muted, I was pleased - especially after my husband said his coworkers wanted to order macs from me after they tasted this one.  The flavor?

Tea, of course!

My cousin worked at a tea shop in San Francisco, and she hooked me up with was awesome Earl Grey tea.  For the filling, I created a curd with the leftover egg yolks and added a generous amount of honey.
