summer berry macarons


i love a good macaron...especially making them at home! 
(even if mine do always turn out a little lumpy dumpy and funny looking)

 each one tastes special...a bit fancy.
my new favorite is a summer berry macaron...strawberries and raspberries with a whipped lemon curd cream. don't mind if i do!





to make your own follow martha's parisian macaron recipe ( i use a pre-ground bag of almonds from trader joe's baking section ) and skip her filling recommendations.

for the summer berry filling- cut up some strawberries and raspberries. leave some for topping and take a cup or so of the rest and puree them with some confectioners sugar to taste. 

using 2 cups of heavy whipping cream, whip under peaks form and fold in a few spoonfuls of lemon curd (also found at trader joe's). i like lots of lemon so i added a bit more as i went along. 

drop a bit of the lemon cream on a macaron half...add berries...and drizzle with berry puree. top off with other macaron half.

delicious!
the perfect summer treat.

  19. Now just WHERE did you get that amazing sifter?? I tried making macarons yesterday, but I think my homemade almond flour had too many chunks in it--my sifter is rather sad. Any tips?

  20. they look beautiful! i tried making some too, on the weekend, mine were pink but not nearly as good looking as yours. but they were so yummy! i love the idea of the lemon curd and cream and summer berries! (i adore you, simply because you called them macarons! people who called them macaroons annoy me oh so much!)
