Homemade macaroons

In an effort to encourage celebrating simply, my third styled Christmas design is filled with tiny hints of simplicity. Easy details you could incorporate to create a relaxed holiday with a little added sparkle! For instance homemade macaroons…

In an effort to have this fabulously trendy treat but stay within budget, I decided to try my hand at making them. I found a great recipe until 16 steps in when I realized it was not very simple at all! Instead I grabbed a box of vanilla wafers, a jar of marshmallow fluff and went to work creating my own version of this beloved french treat!

I topped each macaroon with a dusting of baking glitter. They were incredibly pretty to look at and quite amazing to taste.

  1. I love the look of macaroons too and have been wanting (very timidly) to try my hand at making them. I love your equally cute version with the Nilla wafers — brilliant! Now we just need to figure out how to dye them all those cute colors. :-)

  2. Kelly, yes dying them would be fabulous- Hmmmm. I’ll need to think about that, could we maybe dip the cookies in colored water, like Easter egg dying??? I may have to try that one.

  3. I’m pretty sure Wiltons sells colored decorating sprays that might work at coloring them!

    Love your honesty. 16 steps in?! Must have been a Martha Stewart “easy” recipe. ;)

  4. Tegan… Okay 16 may have been a bit of an exaggeration- you caught me:)

    It was definitely about the time that my peaks were looking more like plains than peaks that I gave up. PS. The real recipie may be easier if you have a nice kitchen aid. I don’t. I have a $12 hand mixer from Target;)
