Macarons with Apricot Marmalade Buttercream for Spring Mactweet



Earlier on this month I had decided I was not going to do the Mac for this months Mactweets after hubby was grumbling about last month about them :-)
But then the last days I have been seeing so many beautiful Macarons like this one from Meeta with her rosewater mac, Deeba with her frozen yoghurt mac and Jamie with her Tulip inspired mac ( she is getting her own domain, so i can't get the link right now)

I had to do them today afternoon and I am in a hurry posting them. I am two days late with the deadline.

Used the same Ottolenghi recipe and filled them with buttercream mixed with apricot marmalade.This monthe Mactweet theme was Spring

Beautiful macarons and the addition of apricot is most welcome; it adds a much needed tanginess to cut down on the sweetnesss.
