Pumpkin Spice Macaroons

Ingredients
1 1/2
cups finely ground almonds
1 1/4
1
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
 
Dash salt
8
drops yellow food coloring
2
drops red food coloring
1/2
cup pumpkin butter or apple butter

Directions

  1. Line three large cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl stir together almonds, powdered sugar, and spice; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine egg whites, vanilla, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until frothy. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed just until soft peaks form (tips curl). Stir in nut mixture and food coloring.
  3. Spoon mixture into a large decorating bag fitted with a large (about 1/2-inch) round tip.* Pipe 1 1/2-inch circles 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Let stand for 30 minutes before baking.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Bake in the preheated oven for 9 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool on cookie sheets on wire racks. Carefully peel cookies off parchment paper.
  5. Spread pumpkin butter on bottoms of half of the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies, bottom sides down.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

If you don't own a decorating bag, spoon mixture into a large resealable plastic bag and snip a 1/2-inch hole in one corner of the bag.

TO STORE:
