Rose and Raspberry Macaron

Wikinition: A macaron is a sweet meringue-based confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring. The macaron is commonly filled with buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from the Italian word maccarone or maccherone.

I love me some macarons.  I’ve only had 3 because that’s a lot of concentrated sugar and I am kind of sensitive to sugar.  I don’t avoid it like I should, but I avoid macarons, despite epic tastiness.

The one above really tastes like a mouthful of roses.
