Everyone loves baking yummy treats, but what’s even better is eating them!  There’s nothing better than biting into a macaron with a crunchy textured outside and a slightly chewy inside, filled with the best caramel buttercream ever.

Here are the ingredients to make these delicious French treats:


Cookie Shell:

3 egg whites

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 2/3 cup confectioners sugar

1 cup almond meal or finely ground almonds


Caramel Buttercream Frosting:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 (3-oz.) package cream cheese, softened

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 (16-oz.) package of powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

¼ cup canned salted caramel sauce


Directions for baking the cookie shell:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

Beat egg whites in large bowl until foamy. Slowly beat in sugar and keep beating until mixture holds soft peaks.

Sift the confectioner’s sugar and almond meal into a separate bowl and fold into the egg mixture.

Pipe 1 ½ inch diameter circles onto the baking sheet.

Let the batter sit in room temperature; then heat for about 1 hour until they form a hard skin on top (this will help the cookies get feet).

Preheat oven to 285 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bake cookies for about 8-10 minutes and let cookies cool completely before filling them.


Directions for making the buttercream frosting:

Beat first 4 ingredients with electric mixer until the mixture is creamy.

Gradually add powdered sugar with 3 tbsp. milk, beating at low speed until blended and smooth.

Melt caramel sauce with 1 tbsp. milk in a small microwave-safe bowl until smooth.  Fold caramel mixture into buttercream, creating swirls.

Put frosting into a piping bag and pipe onto cookie. Top off with another cookie, and you have successfully made macarons! Have fun baking!
