Y’all know I love Macarons. I even made Fruity Pebble Macarons — that shows true love. (PS I also have recipes for Lucky Charm Macarons and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Macarons in my new cookbook for all you cereal lovers out there!)

So when I walked into a Macaron store in International Mall here in Tampa, you can just imagine how big my smile was! Rows and rows of brightly colored macarons with all different kinds of interesting flavors! Then I saw the prices. $18 for 6 macarons?! You have got to be kidding me!

I ended up buying one just to try (and really, it was just ok) and came home and made my own instead. This recipe made over 20 macarons and cost me $2 to make.
