Little Mermaid inspired Seashell Macarons are a tasty, sweet and fun dessert that looks fancy!

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup granulated or superfine sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour or ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup lemon curd
  • teal food color
  • candy pearls

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300° F. Line baking trays with parchment paper or silicone sheets.
  2. Beat egg whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar and food color until you've reached desired color. Beat until sugar dissolves and color is even.
  3. Fold sifted confectioner's sugar and ground almonds into the egg white mixture in two batches.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1/2 inch plain tube. Pipe into shell shapes onto the prepared baking sheets. Tap the sheets on the counter so the batter spreads slightly. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  5. Bake the macarons about 20 minutes. Cool on the trays.
  6. Spoon lemon curd onto one half of the macaron sandwich, add a candy pearl and top with the second half of the macaron sandwich. Enjoy!
