I have been so excited to tell you that I am contributing some of my dessert recipes to Best Friends For Frosting!  Best Friends For Frosting is a site totally devoted to everything dessert!  You will find recipes, interviews with bakery owners and other food bloggers, food styling tips and great ideas for party themes.

My first recipe that I have contributed to the site is for these festive Almond Raspberry Holiday Macarons.  I know that macarons have a reputation of being fussy and difficult to make, but the recipe that I have been using recently is simplified and has given me success each time that I have used it.

I kept the macaron shells the traditional almond flavor, but the buttercream is bursting with raspberry flavor.  For the detailed recipe to make these adorable cookies yourself, head over to Best Friends For Frosting.

And the holiday baking giveaway is still on!  Click here to enter!

    I actually pinned these last night not really looking as to who made them! I have to attempt macaroons real soon as I never have and they look so good. Love the colors of yours too!
