Your morning coffee just got better with these delightful coffee cardamom macarons. Light and crisp shell breaks way to a chewy and playful cardamom macaron which sandwiches an ultra creamy coffee buttercream.
How was Thanksgiving?? What did you eat? Did you do any shopping? Mine was good. We had a ton of food and I decided last minute to make rolls and honey butter, a Dutch apple pie, and my green bean casserole. I ate pretty much all of the green bean casserole on my own. It's my favorite and I wait for every Thanksgiving to gorge myself on huge helpings of it because it just doesn't feel right to have it any other time of the year, you know? And of course I had about 10 rolls and most of the honey butter to myself.
After dinner the family watched Inside Out which made me cry as much as it did the first time I saw it. But before we could even have dinner, I had to drop my mom off at work and there was already a huge line outside her store when we got there. Apparently the store was a madhouse and a couple of her co-workers actually got punched in the face by customers. What is wrong with people?? When I went to pick her up at midnight I had to bring my daughter because no one was around to watch her and she was still awake anyway. The place was still crowded and looked even busier. I love getting good deals and shopping as much as the next person, but it just feels so pointless to me to spend my day fighting with people over an extra 30% off. What do you think?
Anyway, as you can tell, I am macaron obsessed now. I seriously cannot stop making them. I feel like I am a master baker now every time I make them and they actually turn out. I am 2 for 2! Holla!
For a while now, I've been obsessing over the coffee cardamom flavor combination (I have a roulade with this combo I will share soon) and thought this coffee cardamom macaron would be a wonderful way to showcase them, especially with the hazelnut flour I had. The balance between the coffee and the cardamom is blissful. They meld together to make this macaron truly addictive.
