I wanted to make a patriotic dessert for our 4th celebrations, so I decided to go with my latest obsession: macarons. Red, white, and blue macarons to be more specific. The "red" came out more like pink, and were filled with raspberry buttercream. The "white" baked up to be more yellow...they were vanilla. The "blue" had a green tinge to them, and were filled with blueberry buttercream. I think I also whipped the batter a little too much because the peaks didn't settle when I baked them. So they looked a littled wonky, but they still tasted pretty sweet!
