pumpkin spice macarons




Is October I thought about make something with pumpkin but I don't have any recipe idea until I saw this pumpkin spice cream cheese spread  hmmh how about macarons fill with this yummy spread ? Yes it was perfect so I don't have to make the filling,just transfer into piping bag and ready to go.









Ingredients :
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice powder
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 egg white
- 3 Tbsp granulate sugar
- 3 drop yellow  food coloring

Filling :
pumpkin spice cream cheese spread




Preparations :
- Line two cookies sheet with parchment paper
combine powdered sugar,almond flour  and pumpkin spice 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 add 3-4 drop yellow food coloring,gradually add 3 Tbsp granulated sugar,beating at high speed 2-3 minutes or until mixture foam stiff,shiny peaks.

- mix well to incorporate powder sugar and almond, Incorporate the beaten egg whites into the dry ingredients using large spatula,mix well ( not there is no need to fold the mixture )
Then work in the mixture (macaronage ) using plastic scraper, press down well with the scraper,going back and forward,to press out the oxygen from the white,Do this for 2-3 minutes until you have smooth mixture.

- 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,tap 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 15  minutes,rotating cookies sheets halfway trough baking time. cool completely on cookies sheets

-  Transper pumpkin spice cream cheese spread into piping bag
- Match same size cookies,pipe or spread filling on flat side of one cookie and top with another.
