Mini Christmas Macarons

In my kitchen, 2010 was the year of the macaron. So before this year comes to a close (what, December already?!)  I had to get in one more holiday batch. Ok, two. For green, pistachio with chocolate gnaache filling. And for red, these guys:

Standard issue almond flour and meringue cookies with red color added. I made them slightly smaller so they would be bite sized.  The centers for the red ones are a white chocolate ganache spiked with dried cherries and amaretto.

 When packaged with a little ornament they make a nice hostess/host gift for the holiday party season.

Maybe 2011 will drop us all in Paris for the next phase of research!

Until then use some of your Christmas break to visit the Tartlette website and make these little cookies for your family. The light and crunchy texture is a nice break from the usual big and rich Christmas cookies.
