Cook Time: 30 min
Sift together the almond flour, powdered sugar, and salt through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the pieces left in the sieve.
Beat egg whites until frothy. While still beating, add the granulated sugar a little at a time. Continue beating until the egg whites reach stiff peaks.
Beat in the extracts, and then use a rubber spatula to gently fold 1/3 of the almond flour mixture at a time into the egg whites. Be careful not to over-mix.
Pipe the batter into 3/4-inch circles about 1 inch apart on a lined tray. Let them sit to form a skin. Bake.
Match up similar macarons into pairs. Pipe a ring of buttercream on the bottom cookie of each cookie pair. Place 1/2 teaspoon of apple filling in the center.
Drizzle melted white chocolate on top of each macaron. Before the candy drizzle sets, sprinkle a tiny bit of crushed cinnamon graham crackers on each.
