Red Macarons

I have been trying to make the perfect red macaron for a while now.  I have a Christmas cookie exchange coming up in a few weeks and I want to make red and green macarons.   Getting the perfect red has been a pain in the @$$!

I have used regular food coloring, gel and powder food coloring.  I was hoping to have better luck with the powder, using 1 1/2 tsp of red powder... but I think I added a bit too much and it turned burgundy.

I wanted them to be as red as my nail polish.  I was hoping once it baked it would turn a bit more red.  Fail. It was still burgundy. 

I made a white chocolate ganache because I was going for the burgundy and white Christmas.  White chocolate ganache was way too sweet and overpowered the taste of the cookie.  I'm just happy I did not make too much.  

Though the macaron was not as red as I wanted, it was still a very tasty cookie.  Back to the drawing board!
