Orange and Cinnamon Macarons

I'm not addicted to making macarons.

Okay I am.

Trying to perfect the biscuit while experimenting with flavours. I mentioned last time that my silicone-mat baked biscuits always came out worse than the paper-baked ones. I bought a silicone macaron mat to try to defeat my different-sized-biscuits issue. Well, I think I simultaneously solved my foot issue with silicone mat baked biscuits. I lowed the temp and baked for longer and they now resemble the paper ones a lot more. Hooray.

Biscuits are almond sprinkled with cinnamon. Filling is cinnamon and orange tea-infused dark chocolate ganache.

Macaroons are not hard to make at all guys for those people below who seem to get freaked out by them :P but these sound delicious an awesome assortment of flavors I may have to try out :3

Indeed! As long as you can whip egg whites they're not that challenging.

Bahaha. If it makes you feel better they're not really perfect. The shell of the top one is uneven, it dips into the feet a little. And then the bottom mac is smudgy cause I dropped ganache on the shell. :lmao:

Am I the only one who thought of Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide? It instantly reminded me of that for some reason.

They look absolutely fab and sound utterly delicious!
Haven't been brave enough to try making macarons myself yet....but the more I see of yours the more tempted I am to try :nod:

Thank you! I hope you do try. They're not as terrifying as everyone insists!

I will probably try them at some point over the summer whilst my son is home from Uni - he's into cooking too, and always up for learning new things, so we're planning on working through some of your recipes :D

It looks so yummy! I shouldn't look at this when I want something sweet to eat and I don't have anything like that at home. Hungry for sweets!

No one can do it until they get it right! It just takes practise.
