Orange and Cinnamon Macarons by cakecrumbs Orange and Cinnamon Macarons by cakecrumbs
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.

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.

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

I need an excuse to make macarons! Ive never tried one before.. Do you think I would like it?

Hard to say tbh. I think my love for them is almost more textural than taste. I love the tiny crisp layer and they way the inside softens even more with the ganache. They're perfect after a day in the fridge.

Whether you like them might depend on the flavour. I always keep the biscuits plain and focus the flavour into the filling. You might prefer a flavoured biscuit, something more punchy. Some people fill theirs with buttercream, but I shudder at the thought. I think it's be too sweet (and that's coming from a sweet tooth!). I prefer the balance of the slightly bitter ganache. But all that depends on what flavours you like. Best way to know is to just paint the canvas with your personal preference. (Or just fill it with nutella?? I so want to make nutella macarons now.)
