Macarons September 28, 2017 Ever wanted to try and make your own macarons? DO IT! It takes some patience... but well worth the time and effort once you find the right recipe! I found the perfect homemade macaron recipe here. And trust me... it is easy and the cookies turned out perfect the first try!If you waned to add some color to the cookies, use gel food coloring. Don't use liquid food coloring, less liquid the better.
