Crisp and chewy vanilla macarons filled with a peppermint buttercream and coated with crushed candy cane pieces. The macaron gods have once again blessed me with perfectly pied feet on my macarons! I’m sure everyone knows how I feel. Sometimes you get a perfectly good set of macarons and sometimes you don’t.

[quote type=”small” align=”left”] For those who are new to my blog, I run an online macaron boutique called Macarons By Jane. Enjoy true bliss today with my French macarons, made locally in Austin. Baked with love & delivered with a smile![/quote]

You can opt to buy candy canes and crush them with a plastic ziploc bag and rolling pin or buy precrushed peppermint pieces.
