These are not macarons!
These are meringue cookies! To be more exact – this is Lemon & Blueberry Meringue Cookies!
Chewy but crispy, melt-in-the-mouth but creamy, these are the best!
They look a bit like macarons and taste a bit like them too, but in my opinion, these are better.
The cookies have the same ingredients as the typical macaron but made slightly different to them. Adding a third of the unbeaten egg white to the almonds and icing sugar and beating it to a paste is what gives these cookies a definite chewy, which I love a lot!
Sandwiching together this cookie is a luscious blueberry cream. So soft, light and purple. I wish purple was a flavor….That would be so cool! Cook down the blueberries with the sugar until purply and syrupy, leave to cool and fold into whipped cream
Three ingredients, minimal effort.
Rustic meringue cookies – lemon flavored cookies with the sharp blueberry flavor cream, delish!
Why would you not want to make these, they’re amazing! Go make them, I’ll leave so you can make them 😀
Happy baking everyone! 🙂
