How to make it
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment (do not grease or use silicone).
- Pulse the walnuts with the icing sugar in a food processor until finely ground, then sift See Photo. Set aside.
- In a very clean bowl with electric beaters, beat the egg white, meringue powder, sugar and salt until stiff peaks form (this should take 8-10 minutes).
- Beat in the vanilla and colouring until well blended.
- Gently dust the walnut mixture over the beaten mixture and gently fold it in until the meringue is smooth and shiny.
- Transfer to a piping bag (or plastic bag with the corner snipped off) and pipe 3/4" rounds on the parchment.
- Tap the baking sheet on a counter gently (to release any trapped air bubbles), then set aside for 15 minutes. See Photo
- Place in the oven and immediately reduce the oven temperature to 350°F.
- Bake 10-12 minutes and cool completely on the sheets.
- Cream together coconut oil, icing sugar, Limoncello, extract, lemon zest and colouring until creamy.
- Chill at least 1 hour before filling the macarons with 1/2 tbsp of the mixture.
