More macarons!

I made two more batches of macarons this weekend while I had fresh almond flour.
I made strawberry flavored macarons with strawberry buttercream and pistachio macarons with vanilla buttercream.  I used the basic recipe from my previous post. For the strawberry macarons, I reduced the vanilla extract in the batter to 1/2 tsp and added 1 tsp of strawberry extract.  For the pistachio macarons, I added 1/3 cup of finely ground pistachios to the almond flour.  Here's how they turned out...

  1. So I've never tried macaroons, and your posts are starting to make me think that I'm seriously missing out.
