Macaron Recipe


This is a simple recipe for macarons, those favorite French cookies my kids love to call ‘mini cookie burgers.’

Two methods for baking them are below. While it calls for almond flour, other nuts could be used. Hazelnut flour (filbert nuts) can easily be substituted in place of the almonds. Be sure to remove their skins before grinding. If using raw pistachio flour, they will result in much softer, more delicate macarons. See the note below on coloring them.
