2 ingredient macaroons


  • I used a tablespoon measure for these and then just popped them out and onto the tray. You can use a little spray oil to coat the measure and they'll slide out easily.
  • I decorated these with halved glace cherries which is technically a third (but non-essential) ingredient - they'll just ooked so cute!
