If you are getting married at Christmas or even celebrating in style you might be thinking about festive flavours for your food. Here at Medici Macarons we have created 7 special flavours just for the festive season: mince pie macaron, plum, port & cinnamon, stollen macaron, chocolate orange macaron, gingerbread macaron, cranberry macaron and spiced apple.
All of the macarons I have made before but gingerbread was new to me so I decided to make a batch – and here they are:
Its delicately spiced with ground ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg and deepness to the flavour is added by black treacle – so its just a perfect balance of heat and that gingerbread flavour. The macaron provides a ‘very warming eating experience – just perfect’ – so was the feedback from one very happy trialist!
The Christmas macarons can be made in to wonderful macaron towers, as festive favours or provided loose for dessert tables. What a perfect treat for friends and guests and of course yourself!
