TWD - Parisian Macarons

This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Parisian Macarons. These delicate, pretty
treats had a moment a few years back as the successor to the cupcake, and they are still very popular.

I have made macarons before here and here. I have even gone out of my way to try macarons made by patissiers here and here.

It is more than 10 years since I last made macarons, so I think it was time. Dorie’s recipe turned out well for me, with feet and all.

I tinted my half recipe of macarons pale pink, which required more colouring than I expected. I filled some of them with musk flavoured ganache (using the aptly named Flamingo Fantasy flavouring) made with pink chocolate melts:


Flamingo Fantasy is the perfect way to describe these macarons:

I filled the remainder of the macarons with strawberry jam:

I may have piped my macarons a tad too large so some of them spread into one another, but they were devine nevertheless.

To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

They're so pretty! I love the blush colour of your cookies and am quite intrigued by the musk-flavoured filling.

These are very pretty. I just tried a new recipe for macarons and they were a massive fail. I think I'll stick to my original recipe!

Lovely macarons. I was glad to finally make them.
