PB&J Macarons

PB&J Macarons If you’re like me, two words generally come to mind when faced with recipes for Parisian macarons: “Too hard.”

But really, they need not be so scary. This unfussy version is easy as can be, and doesn’t require piping or weighing your ingredients. The result might be a bit more homespun than Pierre Herme, but they’re decidedly delicious nonetheless, with cloud-like cookies which give way to a substantial smear of comforting, creamy white chocolate peanut butter and sweet preserves. Perhaps Santa would like these on his plate instead of the usual (just a thought)!

  • Yield:16 macarons
  • Prep Time:20 minutes
  • Cook Time:1 hour (cooling + filling)
  • Total Time:1 hour 20 minutes

Ingredients

For the cookies:
1/2 cup egg whites (about 4)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups almond meal or flour

For the filling:
1/2 cup preserves of your choice (I like raspberry)
1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

  2. 2. Beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually beat in sugar. Continue beating
    until very stiff and glossy. Stir in the vanilla, salt, and almond flour.

  3. 3. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned on the edges. Remove carefully with a spatula while still warm.

  4. 4. Turn the cookies over and try to pair like-sized cookies next to one another. Choose two to start. On one of the cookie half, spread a thin layer of preserves; on the other half, spread Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful. Sandwich the halves together gently. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
