recipe : raspberry macarons

Raspberry Macarons
How about a Valentine’s Day tea party? When I made these, I didn’t mean to add jam to them. I was under the impression I had cream for the whipped filling. No, I didn’t. I was in sweats, hair in a messy bun, smeared mascara from the night before. I was in no position for a grocery run. People, jam was the genius side of me thinking. Or starving side of me.

Pink, parisian, pretty. Perfect for Valentine’s day.

  • These are so romantic and they look super delicious! Well done! And looks like jam fits perfectly. I have always wanted to try macarons.

    I am hoping to make a sort of  Julia Child kind of valentines day like in the film “Julie & Julia”one day and these macarones will be put on my top of recipe lists for that day. Do you know what kind I mean?
