For those craving French pastries but also festive pies, this homemade tart macaron recipe by Sugar & Cloth creatively shows a way to enjoy both simultaneously. The homemade macarons are decorated with food coloring to resemble fruit-filled pies offering a refreshing take on the traditionally colored cookies.

These freshly made macarons are made using almond extract and filled with white royal icing. Foodies looking to take this recipe to the next level could easily flavor the centre cream to reflect the taste of the pie decoration. Then using edible food markers and paint pie crusts and fruit fillings such as berries, lime and lemon are drawn using dots to create a texturized effect. Some of the pies such as lime and lemon are even topped with mini meringues.
