In a food processor, process the almond powder and icing sugar until it begins to clump. Sift and discard the solids.

Whip the egg whites to form a consistency, like a loose foam. Gradually add sugar and continue whipping until it forms a stiff meringue. Fold in the sugar mixture and add color to it.

Pour the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a #2A tip. Pipe heart shape macaroons onto the baking sheet. After you have piped all the macaroons, whack the baking sheet on the counter to get rid of bubbles. Let them dry at room temperature for one hour.
