Maple Cream Filled Macarons
This month's MacTweet challenge was to create a macaron that was inspired by what fall means to me. While I could (and do) eat various maple treats all year round, the fall is truly the time of year that invokes my strongest cravings for this flavor. I made a basic macaron and filled it with an intense maple buttercream. It reminded me of a maple glazed donut. I reccently traveled to Philadelphia and picked up a jar of Maple extract at Fante's Kitchen Wares Shop. I found their product to be excellent - the scent was so strong that I could smell it before I took the cap off! I can't wait to try using it in more recipes.
