These French macarons pack a big flavor punch even though the cookie is so small! But rest assured, with a base of almond flour, these small cookies are more filling than some cookies twice their size.
Made with either key lime juice or regular lime juice (depending on what is available to you) the buttercream inside the cookies is where all the tangy taste lies. And you will not be disappointed if you are looking for a bite of sweet lime tartness!
These macarons are great for any occasion but put a few drops of green coloring in them and they become a perfect St. Patrick’s Day cookie.
I used fondant and colored it black to make a leprechaun belt, hatband, or what other interpretation you would like to attribute to it.
Then I cut out “buckles” from gold-colored fondant. A little tricky to cut out, I found that they cut easier after the fondant dries out a little bit.
But don’t worry, the buckles don’t have to be perfect to give the look of St. Patrick’s Day and leprechauns.
