Macaron with Pumpkin Buttercream

It's been a long time I have not bake Macaron. Today I am in the mood to bake some as requested by my nieces. Since I still have balanced pumpkin, therefore I decide to try the pumpkin buttercream. I have not tried this type of filling before but was suprised that it taste quite good. For some balanced Macarons, I have used Nutella as filling.


Macaron Recipe

4 large egg whites
70g Caster Sugar
230g Icing Sugar
120g Almond Ground
Food Coloring (optional)

- Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
- Beat Egg white and caster sugar till stiff.
- Sift the Almond Ground and Icing Sugar.
- Fold into the egg white mixture.
- Mixture should be smooth and not runny.
- Do not over mix or else macarons will have no feet.
- Pipe onto trays lined with baking paper.
- Give the tray a rap and bake for 20 minutes.

Pumpkin Buttercream

4 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup powdered sugar

- Cream butter and pumpkin to smooth mixture
- Add vanilla, followed by cinamon and nutmeg
- Slowly add the powdered sugar till you get the right consistency.

Hi Cecilia
I have never tried macarons, and this is the first time I have heard of pumpkin buttercream. Although I do not make cakes with buttercream that often, I will remember to look up your pumpkin buttercream recipe when the time comes. Thanks for linking up to MTR#3- Taste of Autumn :)
