18 Marvelous Macaron Recipes

From Savory Intergalactic Pastries to Decadent Donut Macarons

— July 2, 2015 — Lifestyle
These marvelous macaron recipes make it easy to prepare and enjoy the delicate French dessert. In recent years, macarons have become an extremely popular treat because they can be customized in a number of different ways. Whether they are disguised as an intergalactic character or they are adorned with holiday decorations, these delicate cookies are perfect for any occasion.

Traditional French macarons consist of two fluffy meringue-based cookies held together by a layer of buttercream, ganache or jam filling. The cookies are usually colored according to their flavor, meaning macarons come in a broad spectrum of colors. While traditional varieties include sweet flavors such as strawberry and lemon, there are also savory macrons in flavors such as chili peppers and wasabi.

The design of macarons have also evolved over the years. For example, some of these macaron recipes feature cookies shaped like cacti, burgers and even intergalactic characters. With so many flavors and designs to choose from, these cookies are perfect for everything from weddings to afternoon tea.
