Ingredients

  • 1 cup (612 oz) Truvía® Cane Sugar Blend

  • 112 cups (5 oz) sifted almond flour

  • 4 egg whites, room temperature

  • 18 tsp cream of tartar

  • 2 Tbsp Truvía® Cane Sugar Blend

  • 14 cup sugar-free raspberry or strawberry preserves

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper; spray paper with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix 1 cup Truvía® Cane Sugar Blend and almond flour.

  3. In mixer fitted with whisk attachment, beat egg whites on medium speed about 1 minute or until foamy. Add cream of tartar; beat 2 to 3 minutes or until soft peaks form.

  4. Reduce speed to low; beat in 2 tablespoons Truvía® Cane Sugar Blend. Increase speed to high, and beat until glossy, stiff peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with flour mixture, and carefully fold in until combined, being careful not to deflate egg whites.

  5. Place batter in decorating bag fitted with large round tip. Pipe 48 (1-inch) rounds onto cookie sheets. With wet finger, gently press down peaks on macaroons.

  6. Place macaroons in oven, and immediately lower oven temperature to 300°F. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely on pans before removing, about 20 minutes.

  7. Place preserves in small bowl. Stir slightly to break up chunks if necessary. Fill each pair of cookies with 12 teaspoon preserves. Serve immediately, or stack between layers of cooking parchment paper to store.

*This cookie has 80 calories and 4 grams of sugar per serving compared to the full-sugar version that has 150 calories and 18 grams of sugar per serving.
