LIFE’S LITTLE SWEETS
These French Macarons are made using a sweet, simple recipe with few ingredients that can be customized to your own tastes and with different colors.
You can make those beloved, coveted, fancy French Macarons right in your home kitchen! I filled the pink, vanilla-flavored macarons with a pink, classic, vanilla buttercream frosting to make the popular “sandwich-style” macaron but they are just as delicious as a single cookie!

How to make French Macarons
Adjust the middle rack in your oven and with another oven rack on the bottom of the oven too. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Line your baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, sift the powdered's sugar and almond flour together (if there are any coarse bits leftover, just discard them); Use a whisk to make sure it's evenly mixed.
In a mixing bowl, with a handheld electric mixer, beat the egg whites on low until frothy, add the cream of tartar and salt.
This recipe is inspired by any French Macarons that I have had in researching for this recipe and also on the “French Macarons” recipe from FoodNetwork.com.
