My Favorite French Macarons

What better way to celebrate Almond Day
than with a recap of a few of my favorite Macarons:

Banana Cream Pie Macarons

Once you take a bite out of these macarons you are forced to make a double take just to make sure you didn’t just take a bite out of a creamy Banana Cream Pie, they taste just like it! I made these for last years Food Blogger Bake Sale.

S'mores Macarons

S'mores inspired French Macarons

A little more sophisticated than a traditional S’more but pack with all those amazing flavors that take you back to those nostalgic campground days. These were part of last year’s Food Blogger Bake Sale too. :)

Irish Coffee Macarons

Inspired by a visit to the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco… need I say more?

Orange-Lime Margarita Macarons

If you are looking for a fresh change of scenery but haven’t got the resources to make it happen these will do the trick, you will feel like you’ve been immediately transported to an amazing Mexican beach after one bite.

Happy Almond Day!

I hope you enjoyed my French Macaron recap!
