Red Velvet Macarons*

Red Velvet Macarons  (via thenovicechefblog.com)


Y’all know I love Macarons. I even made Fruity Pebble Macarons — that shows true love. (PS I also have recipes for Lucky Charm Macarons and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Macarons in my new cookbook for all you cereal lovers out there!)

So when I walked into a Macaron store in International Mall here in Tampa, you can just imagine how big my smile was! Rows and rows of brightly colored macarons with all different kinds of interesting flavors! Then I saw the prices. $18 for 6 macarons?! You have got to be kidding me!

I ended up buying one just to try (and really, it was just ok) and came home and made my own instead. This recipe made over 20 macarons and cost me $2 to make. I already had Almond Meal in my pantry — so that saved on my total price…but even if I had to buy Almond Meal, it’s only $8 for a large bag! Sure they take some time, but I enjoy the process!

Head on over to Dixie Crystals to check out the recipe for these Red Velvet Macarons that I developed for them!

    These look gorgeous!! And isn’t crazy how much bakeries and such charge for them?! And then it’s disappointing when they are just ok…

    These are gorgeous — the color is so perfect! I’m afraid to make these cookies. One day…one day.

    They look perfect! I have only made macarons once and they tasted great but didn’t come out with the “feet”.

    I hate that about bakeries. I understand a lot of work goes into making things, but $3 for a small macaron? C’mon!

    These are so pretty, and I’m a sucker for anything red velvet. :-)

    Hi, Jessica. I checked out teh recipe and will have to try it; I’ve never made macarons before but these look great. What do you mean by “aged egg whites,” though? Thanks!

      Eek! I just emailed Dixie Crystals to let them know. It should be 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar! ;-)
