I’m excited to share my FIRST macaron recipe with you guys! These cute little cookies can be pretty tricky to make and it took me a few tries to get them right. The first couple of batches were a total fail (flat, stuck to the pan, lumpy, etc.), but I finally got it right while following the Wilton recipe and couldn’t be happier about the results! The raspberry almond flavor is delicious and they had the perfect consistency! Now that I’ve cracked the code I plan on baking macarons more often, so I hope you like them as much as I do! Since Easter is coming up I thought it would be fun to decorate them like Easter eggs—it’s like the grown up and more delicious version of dying hard-boiled eggs! I found this gold metallic candy paint brush at Michaels and figured it would be the perfect time to try it out! The thin brush makes it really easy to paint the designs onto the macaron. I’m excited to try using it on other baked goods, too, like cake pops, cookies and cakes. It’s so simple, but the end results look really fancy. Below is the macaron recipe that worked best for me and once you get the hang of it they are really easy to make!
