These Are The BEST Macaron Recipes On Pinterest

If you're crazy about macarons and have dreams of running away to become a French pastry chef — we feel you. The Parisian delicacy is just so damn lovely, light, and unbelievably Instagrammable. Plus, it makes us feel like Marie Antoinette herself.

But, if you don't happen to be French royalty and are looking to save a few bucks while feeding your macaron habit, making your own from scratch is an affordable and fairly easy solution (once you get the hang of it). All you’ll need is eggs, sugar, ground almonds, food coloring, and voilà — the homemade macarons of your dreams.
