Description

Pumpkin spice macarons with pumpkin cream cheese filling.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE MACARONS:
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¾ cups Almond Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Turmeric
  • ½ teaspoons Ground All-spice
  • 2 whole Egg Whites
  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 drop Orange Food Coloring Paste
  • FOR THE PUMPKIN CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
  • ¼ cups Fresh Or Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • ¼ cups Cream Cheese, Softened

Preparation

Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Put a master template under the parchment paper or draw about twelve 1 1/2-inch circles in rows on the paper, about 1 inch apart. Set sheets aside.

Process powdered sugar, almond flour and all the spices in a food processor until finely ground. Sift the mixture through a sieve. If there are more than 2 tablespoons of large chunks left in the sieve, grind them and sift again. Set the mixture aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitter with a whisk attachment, beat egg whites at medium speed until frothy. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Increase the speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.

Sift the almond flour mixture over the egg whites. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the almond flour mixture into the egg whites until the ingredients are just combined. Add food coloring to tint the batter. Continue to fold the mixture until it has loosened and falls in a ribbon from the spatula.

Fit a pastry bag with a 1/2-inch round tip and fill the bag with the batter. Using the template as a guide, pipe circles onto the parchment papers.

Tap the bottom of each sheet on the work surface to release trapped air bubbles. Let the cookies stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. This allows the cookies to develop their crusts.

Preheat oven to 300 F. Bake the macarons for 10 to 12 minutes, until set but not browned. Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks and let the macarons to cool completely on the pans. Once cooled, gently lift half of the cookies from the parchment paper and turn them upside down.

To prepare filling, combine cream cheese and pumpkin puree, and mix thoroughly.

Spoon or pipe a teaspoon of filling onto each of the upside-down cookies. Top with the remaining cookies.

Hi Mari, I used E.D. Smith. But I think most of the brands should work fine.

looks SO good. Just wondering what brand of pumkin puree would be the best for this recipe, or what you might have used for these macarons
