Liz from A Sweet Baker has a super delicious recipe in store for us…
Hi everyone! I’m back this month with something a little tropical because as you’re reading this I’m on a Caribbean cruise with my family! I just might have a margarita on my cruise and I thought I’d share some of these Margarita Macaroons with you to get you in to mood for warmer weather and sunny skies!
I made these macaroons with my favorite citrus fruit, lime, but I’m sure they would taste just as good with lemon, orange or grapefruit. Now, there is a bit of tequila in these macaroons but it’s not, in the least, overpowering. I added 1 Tbsp. but you can certainly add more if you want more of the tequila taste. I wanted the lime to shine through and I think I found the perfect balance.
I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture above but these macaroons are very moist and chewy. Just the way I like them! I liked how they toasted perfectly on the top and bottom and the centers stayed soft and gooey. Because they’re Margarita Macaroons you can also add some salt sprinkled over the top to give them that sweet and salty taste. If you’re a tequila fan, you might also like my Tequila-Lime Peach Galette I made last summer. It was a nice, light dessert using the season’s freshest peaches!
Here’s hoping these will get you in the mood for warm weather, sunny skies, and relaxing with your feet up! Cheers!
