Ah, February 14th, the ubiquitous holiday of looo-ve. Inspired by the impending lovey-doveyness, I made some raspberry macarons.
Pictured above is a raspberry macaron heart, unfilled, slightly deformed but delicious, nonetheless. I used Tartelette's recipe and added crushed and sifted freeze dried raspberries. The batter itself was light pink and had dots of pink. When I slid the tray out, the once pink circles and hearts toasted into a light brown. I like them without the filling. They're sweet, chewy, and absolutely adorable.
Whether you're spending it with your special someone or your friends, enjoy your day with some sweets!
Here are a few of my favorites on the web:
