If you follow me on Pinterest you may have noticed by now that I love macarons, I’m pinning them all the time. They are so delicate, I love their versatility of flavors and their bright colors and honestly how could I resist them, they taste like candy. Every time we go on vacation I’m sure to grab some – because they only sell them within probably 2 hours of me. In California I loved the salted caramel and the coconut macarons from Lette Macarons in Newport Beach, and during our recent short term move to Washington D.C. I loved getting the red velvet macarons from The Sweet Lobby.
With the recipe below I only listed the ingredients you’ll need then inserted a link to Bravetart for the directions. I love Stella’s recipe and it was also fun reading through her macaron myths. Macarons are tricky, and I’m no pro (I’ve only made them a number of times) so I’d thought it would be better just to link to her directions because she knows what she’s doing.
This recipe is very versatile. I also considered filling these with a chocolate ganache. They are very sweet with the jam, so if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth you might want to go with a little jam along with some dark or bittersweet ganache and maybe use a less sugar jam. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas! Oh I just love this whole season. The boots and scarves, family parties (minus the ones with crazy extended relatives), snow (only until December 26th though please), and particularly, especially … the food. The cookies, the hot chocolate, the honey glazed ham and slow roasted turkey, the cranberry sauce and the mountains of mashed potatoes...
I’m ready to be rollin’ with all the pumpkin recipes. This one uses just a little pumpkin puree to turn ordinary butter into something seasonally delicious. Whipped Cinnamon Pumpkin Honey Butter Cinnamon, honey, and pumpkin puree are whipped into softened butter until fluffy and light. Fall flavor whipped into good old butter. You can’t go...
