Tiramisu macarons

When I visit Paris,French last year I'm in love with this macarons at a first bite, I had these macarons cookies for dessert every night during I stayed there.
I never find french macarons around here near where I lived, So I tried to make it but never work out, I try and try again, finally I'm so excited about this tiramisu macarons, it turn out well,it doesn't looks perfect,but taste delicious :)




I have a first bite of macarons in this bakery, STOHRER



I even have macarons on my lap while sitting in the park in downtown Paris.



Of course I can't just create this macarons without the recipe, so I bought two cook books about macarons and I got  this recipe from "macarons and more" to share with you guys. at least I can create macarons filling next time :)

Ingredients
cookies :
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon espresso powder
3 egg whites at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup granulated sugar

filling :
3/4 cup mascarpone cheese
6 tablespoon butter,softened
1/2 teaspoon rum extract, I substitute with 1/2  teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting



Preparations :
- Line two cookies sheet with parchment paper
combine powdered sugar,almond flour and espresso powder in a food processor,pulse into fine powder
sift mixture into medium bowl,discard large pieces

- beat egg whites in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until foamy,beat with vanilla add granulated sugar,beating at high speed 2-3 minutes until mixture foam stiff,shiny peaks

- add half of flour mixture to egg whites stir with spatula to combine ( about 12 strokes) repeat with remaining flour mixture make about 15 strokes ( do not over mix or under mix )

- attach 1/2 inch plain tip to piping bag,scoop batter into bag pipe 1-inch circles about 2-inch apart onto prepare cookie sheets,rap cookies sheet on flat surface to remove air bubbles and set aside,let macarons rest uncovered,until tops harden slightly,this takes from 15 minutes to an hour in more humid condition,when the batter does not stick,macarons are ready to bake

- preheat oven to 350 f,place rack in center of oven,bake 13 minutes to 15 minutes,rotating cookies sheets halfway trough baking time. cool completely on cookies sheets
