Merry Macaroons!

Hello everyone! Welcome to all my new followers :) Can't believe I hit the 200 mark, whoop, whoop! Thanks everyone for your support!

Well with Christmas at our door step, I probably will not have any time for posts until the new year. So today I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Hope you all are enjoying  this time of year :) 

So for my last post of the year I wanted to share some macaroons that I just finished making to take to my parents house for Christmas Eve. This was my first attempt at making them and I was surprised on how well they turned out for me (other than colour.) I really wanted to make red macaroons and fill them with green icing (Chrsitmas colours)... but since they turned out pink I just used a white filling. Not worried cause I'm sure they will taste just as yummy!

Here are a few pics of how they looked along the way...




 Don't they look yummy?!? They are! I know, cause I had to try... I think I will have to go one a diet after the holidays are over, lol! If you are interested in the recipe I used, click here. Ann walks you through every step of the way and even has trouble shooting tips and a video to help you. You will also love her accent!

Thanks again everyone for following me on my wild crafting journey through life. See you all soon... until next year!


 Sharing this with my Crafty Peeps!
