Ode to a Macaroon

Well Finally! I’ve gotten round to making these beauties. And they are absolutely worth the wait. I think I took so long in making them out of perceived fear, but in reality, they were super easy to make. Ok, so maybe not as simple as whipping up a bunch of vanilla cupcakes, but no harder than making a meringue. Because really, at the end of the day, that is all they are – colored meringues with a bit of filling. I’m going to be making plenty more of these delicious bites, they look so impressive to serve to guests or to give away as presents. Guaranteed to result in an abundance of ‘oo’s and ‘ah’s and a great boost to your baking ego.

I used this good food recipe but made regular sized macaroons. For the filling I used an almond butter icing for the creamy ones, jam for the red strawberry ones, and the best, nutella for the chocolate colored ones. What do you think? Aren’t they just so cute?
