Pink Lemonade French Macarons

Saturday I made pink lemonade french macarons, which is fancy for lemon macarons with pink food coloring. I have been obsessing about them since our little trip to Vegas, and I was up for the challenge.

Like they say on Access Hollywood, “What was Britney thinking”…that’s what I kept saying to myself. Geez-Louise, talk about a lot of work. I think for a first try they were good enough. I had mixed reviews. I decided to make lemon macarons because I’d been wanting to make Lemon Curd.

If I ever do make macarons again (key word ‘ever’), I will definitely make them a lot smaller…For my first attempt, I made these way too big, and I think I will go with chocolate next time rather than lemon. I am however excited to use all the extra lemon curd, and I was thrilled to find out that you can freeze it too. Yum!

Here’s the recipe: Lemon Macarons. To make them look pink, I added pink (red) food coloring) to the batter while mixing.

I took them up to my mom’s house that night to join everyone in seeing off my darling cousin Trisha who is headed to Romania for a few months. I was sure glad I did, because we didn’t have nearly enough sugar to go around. 😉

    Well, they sure LOOK good! And, as usual, your photos are amazing.

    I had a similar experience with a dessert I made for Easter. It took hours and hours of preparation I ended up with 1/3 of it splattered all over me.

    They are so pretty!!! However, it’s hard to imagine how they taste just by looking at them. I don’t think I’d ever heard of them before. Your photography is great. Last night my hubby was your bolg and commented on how good your pictures are. If he noticed, they are good! :)
