Watch my video recipe for step-by-step instructions!

I made this recipe with maraschino cherries. If you prefer a different filling, try adding diced strawberry or crushed, freeze-dried raspberries! Check out my other macaron recipes for filling ideas. To make these even more special, try drizzling the top of the cookies with melted chocolate, add sprinkles or other edible decorations. For best results, allow the cookies to ‘mature’ in the refrigerator for two days before enjoying them. Just place them into an airtight container so they remain fresh, then remove one hour before enjoying.
