Ingredients

  • 1 cup (6 ½ oz.) Truvia® Cane Sugar Blend

  • 1 ½ cups (5 oz.) sifted almond flour

  • 4 egg whites, room temperature**

  • ⅛ tsp cream of tartar

  • 2 Tbsp Truvia® Cane Sugar Blend

  • ¼ 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 Truvia® 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 Truvia® 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 ½ teaspoon preserves.

Raspberry Filled Gluten Free Almond Macaroons is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible after taste I bought this to make cookies for my daughter's birthday. While I love truvia, this stuff was terrible. I am not a novice baker and have made macarons a few times, these stuck to my Silpat mats, spread out to double in size and the taste was just awful.
