Galaxy Macarons

4 Sep

My first attempt at these were a failure; albeit a beautiful failure. People seemed to think they were pretty cool, so I wanted to share the recipe anyway. BUT since I’m a bit obsessive, I wanted to make sure they worked as an actual macaron with feet and everything.

Spoiler:they do.

If you want to have these just as “almond galaxy cookies” add extra color and bake them immediately without the resting period. If you do want macarons, make sure to rest and go lightly with the gel color.

Cinnamon and Sugar Macarons

16 Aug cinnamon and sugar macarons

Do you remember the brown sugar and cinnamon Poptarts?? (Not sure if that needs a copyright symbol.) These were a middle of the night “I need to remake my cinnamon roll macarons” idea. Despite aiming for cinnamon roll flavor, eating these reminded me of my favorite Poptarts.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Macarons

2 Aug

My home town high school had a breakfast available every morning for the kids who were dropped off early or who rode the bus. My favorite was breakfast pizza (the cafeteria would be full every other Thursday morning.) This is, unfortunately, not a recipe for breakfast pizza macarons. The other popular breakfast there were the Smuckers Uncrustables peanut butter sandwiches, because apparently it was too hard to make real peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. These macarons remind me of the cloying, sweet flavor of those sandwiches in a bite size package.

Vegan Lemon Thyme Macarons

24 Jul

I was really intrigued by the idea of infusing aquafaba with different flavors and I have some beautiful thyme growing in my garden this summer. These macarons combined the savory flavor of thyme with a sweet lemon filling and are a perfect light treat.

Be sure to check out my macaron troubleshooting guide for a step by step with pictures!

As always, a big thanks to Charis at Floral Frosting for the vegan macaron recipe and inspiration! Check out the aquafaba Facebook group for more recipes involving aquafaba!

Strawberry Lemonade Macarons

23 Jun

I decided to start from scratch with my macaron recipe after many (MANY) attempts. I wanted a shell that was a little thicker and could possibly withstand a higher temperature of baking. See my previous post for more details. Spoiler alert: it can’t. However, it performs great under the baking conditions Charis at Floral Frosting created! If you haven’t already watched it, she created this awesome video that illustrates the macaron making process and the crucial step, the macaronagge.

These are a great summer flavor, especially after chilling in the refrigerator overnight! I love the combination of lemon and strawberry, and the bright color is perfect for this sunny time of year.

Vegan Macaron Troubleshooting

26 May

I’m writing this post to help the wonderful people in the vegan meringue Facebook group. All of my experience with making vegan macarons has been with the recipes created by Charis at Floral Frosting. If you need anymore help or information about making macarons, she posted a great video here. I’m going to attempt to outline my method, which varies a bit from Charis’s and then give a few pointers on how to avoid some common problems. This is not meant to be a complete guide to vegan macarons, just my experiences!! Also, remember no matter how they turn out, they’re still delicious!
