Pumpkin Spice Macarons!

I know that everyone has been going pretty heavy on all things pumpkin lately, but we are well into the fall season, which means we have a limited amount of time left to soak (read: eat) it all up!  So in typical October style (aka, turning every recipe into a pumpkin recipe), I made some pumpkin spice macarons that are oh-so tasty! Trust me, you will most certainly want to have this recipe on seasonal repeat.

Macarons have a reputation for being tough to make, but let me assure you, they are not as difficult as you think – as long as you follow the recipe and measure your ingredients, you shouldn’t have any troubles.



To make the macaron, follow these instructions from a previous blog post. For the extract, use vanilla.  I also used a very small amount of orange food coloring for the cookie.

And the pumpkin spice filling is where the magic happens…

What you need:
- 1/4 Cup of pumpkin puree
- 1/2 Teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 Teaspoon of salt
- 1 1/2 - 2 Cups of powdered sugar

Mix all the ingredients together, and add more powdered sugar as needed to achieve the desired consistency.  Once you have your filling, use a cake decorating bag to help pipe out 1 teaspoon of the filling on a cookie (or, just use a spoon, if that’s more your style), and sandwich together between another cookie.


These little guys are so yummy, and they would be a pretty impressive (and super tasty) treat for a fall dinner (or any time, really)!
