    Preparation

    1
    Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Sift together almond flour and powdered sugar in medium bowl; set aside.
    2
    Beat egg whites in a large mixing bowl with electric mixer on medium until foamy. Add cream of tartar. Beat in granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat in vanilla and yellow food coloring until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Fold in one-third of the almond mixture. Repeat folding in remaining almond mixture just until smooth. Spoon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a ¼ inch-round tip.
    3
    Holding piping bag vertically, pipe 48 (1½-inch-round) disks on one prepared cookie sheet. Pipe 48 (1½-inch) circular rings on the other prepared cookie sheet, leaving a hole in the centers. Firmly tap cookie sheets on work surface several times to release air bubbles. Let stand 30 to 40 minutes or until tops are slightly dry.
    4
    Preheat oven to 300°. Bake, one cookie sheet at a time, 11 to 14 minutes or until dry and crisp. Cool completely on baking sheets on wire racks.
    5
    Stir jam until smooth. Spread ½ teaspoon jam on the bottom of each macaron disk. Top with macaron rings, bottom sides down.
    6
    To decorate, frost half of the filled macrons with pink glaze and the remaining filled macarons with white glaze. Drizzle or pipe purple glaze over pink-glazed macarons. Let stand until set.
    7
    For the jelly donut glaze, Melt unsalted butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl in microwave. Whisk in powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Transfer 3 tablespoons glaze to a small bowl; stir in 2 or 3 drops purple food coloring; set aside. Tint half of the remaining glaze with pink food coloring. Makes ¾ cups.
