Last night I made Chocolate Macaroons with a Pistachio Buttercream filling. SO for St Patty's day weekend I made Pistachio Macaroons with pistachio buttercream filling. The first batch came out good, with feet then I added more dye and they failed (no feet). By the way the buttercream in the recipe has way too much butter so I added A TON of confectioner's sugar (a normal amount for normal buttercream) and made it better.  I had leftover buttercream so I decided to try the chocolate macaroons and the chocolate kind of overwhelms the pistachio so I think they would be better with a peanut butter buttercream. I LOVE MACAROONS! Next time I'll make more little baby macaroons !
