  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper; spray paper with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix 1 cup Truvía™ Baking Blend and almond flour.
  • 2
    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. Reduce speed to low; beat in 2 tablespoons Truvía™ Baking 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.
  • 3
    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 macarons.
  • 4
    Place macarons 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.
  • 5
    Place preserves in small bowl. Stir slightly to break up chunks if necessary. Fill each pair of cookies with 1/2 teaspoon preserves. Serve immediately, or stack between layers of cooking parchment paper to store.
