Are you finally ready for warmer, sunnier weather? I know I am! The last few days have been warm and sunny that the whole family has been enjoying the outdoors. I just hope it stays for good this time!
I originally shared this post on What’s Cooking with Ruthie when I was on my cruise in March. Since the weather on my cruise was so much warmer than it was here, I may have indulged in a few margaritas during happy hour! I was inspired to make these Margarita Macaroons to incorporate my love of sweets and my love of a good margarita!
These macaroons are made 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!
