These tricolor macarons from the 'Eat. Live. Travel. Write.' blog are a great way for Francophiles to celebrate Bastille Day. Made from simple ingredients and decorated with the colors of the French flag, these delicate cookies are the perfect way to celebrate the national unity of France.

To makes these delicious pastries, you will need ground almonds, powdered sugar, egg whites, granulated sugar and food coloring powder. Begin by combining the almond flour with the powdered sugar. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites consistently for several minutes. Add the food coloring power and the other dry ingredients to your egg whites by folding the mixture. Next, pipe the mixture onto a piece of parchment paper and bake until slightly firm. Once cool, fill the center of your macarons with ganache.

The end result is a delicate tricolor cookie that serves as a tasty way to celebrate Bastille Day.
