How to Make Holiday Wreath Meringue Macarons

I’m super excited that I was able to get my hot-mess self in gear enough to make some holiday wreath meringue macarons for a blogger cookie exchange with some of my faves! Last year I was way too insanely pregnant and overwhelmed to partake, so I’m jumping back on the bandwagon this year, woohoo!

You may remember my everything sweet sugar cookies (which I’ll definitely be making with Gwen this year) from our last cookie exchange, and these macarons are equally colorful and festive.

Since there are about a bazillion classic vanilla macaron recipes, I’ll be sticking with sharing how to decorate your own favorite recipe. Plus you can find allllll of the yummy homemade cookie recipes from by blogger pals linked at the bottom of the post…
