Lime and Green Apple Macarons Recipe
The tart lime and sweet green apple flavor these delicate macarons. They are ideal for spring or St. Patrick's Day due to their green color and sweet filling. They take some time to perfect, but the end result is well worth it.

- Sift together almond flour and powdered sugar in a medium mixing bowl.
- Whisk together the egg whites, granulated sugar, and cream of tartar in a separate large mixing bowl until stiff peaks form.
- Fold the almond flour and egg white mixture together until completely combined.
- Fold in the green food coloring, lime zest, and green apple flavoring until the batter is smooth and evenly colored.
- Fill a piping bag with a round tip with the batter.
- Pipe small rounds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then tap the sheet against the counter to release any air bubbles.
- Allow the macarons to rest for 30 minutes to an hour at room temperature, or until a thin shell forms on the surface.

- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the shells are set and just beginning to brown.
- Before removing the macarons from the baking sheet, allow them to cool completely.

- Add powdered sugar gradually and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
- Beat in the green apple flavoring, vanilla extract, and green food coloring until thoroughly combined.
- Fill a piping bag with a round tip with the filling.
- Pipe the filling onto one macaron's flat side and sandwich with another.
- Repeat with the remaining macarons.
- Refrigerate the macarons in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
