Lighter on the ice cream but sprinkled with large sugar crystals. An incredible crunch on this fall treat!

I've always wanted to write my own book on Macarons but figured it would never happen, but thanks to Shutterfly I've made my own personal book and it looks like the real deal, I can't wait until it gets here :)

I was really craving chocolate chip cookies so I made these and used the macadamias from the freezer, a long ryone ago I actually peeled and dried and then had shelled some macadamias, but they have been hidden in the freezer forever, still delicious though!

I'm not sure where I'm getting these bursts of energy, but when I saw the grapevine had new leaves I decided to make dolma, here it is ready to bake.

At this point I thought it was done but I really needed more time, the recipe I used didn't specify a temp so I went with 350 & i should have gone with 450

Raspberry Lime Rickey Macarons

Raspberry Lime Rickey Macarons
For this month's mac tweets, color my world challenge I made pink and green macs. Usually I don't color my macs so brightly so this was something new to me. I also made the mistake of making two batches (I should have just done one cut in two) so it was a long afternoon/evening of baking! However I'm really pleased with the colorful results!

I sandwiched a chocolate ganache with a tiny bit of raspberry jam which I mixed with lime juice and sugar and powdered sugar. I dubbed these raspberry lime rickey macarons as when I was a small child there was an ice cream shop in my home town (still is) and people would order this raspberry lime soda all the time. I had a blast making these for the Color my world challenge!

These were acting like dominos when I set up the photo shoot so i also did one of them fallen down (and added some more to show off the color).
