Watermelon Macarons

READY IN: 16mins




  • To Make Macaron Shells:
  • In a bowl, combine sifted powdered sugar and almond flour.
  • Beat egg white (at room temperature) and sugar until you get soft peaks.
  • Then add the powdered sugar and almond mixture.
  • Mix well and then divide into two equal bowls.
  • Make one green by adding several drops of green food coloring; mix well.
  • Make the other bowl pink by adding a few drops of red food coloring; mix well.
  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, pipe each color; making sure the disc shapes are the same size.
  • For the pink discs, sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  • After piping all the cookies, allow the shells to rest for 30 minutes until a thin skin has formed.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 225 degrees F.
  • To Make the Filling:
  • Blend butter until it's smooth and creamy.
  • Add powdered sugar, heavy cream, a pinch of salt and several drops of watermelon flavoring.
  • Blend together until well-combined.
  • To Assemble the Macaron:
  • Pipe the filling on one side of the shell, and top with the other shell (making sure one side is green and one side is pink, so it resembles a watermelon slice).
