Rose Macarons with White Chocolate Rose filling


It is ages ago I made Macarons. There was a time when I used to make them so much that if Hans saw me in the kitchen making them he would cry out loud in despair not again thise over sweet things.
I do agree Macarons are tad too sweet, but iI do think when they are filled they taste totally different even though they are sweet.
I have to admit I almost have converted Hans to like them with my special fillings. He do like them these days, just one with his coffee if the fillings are special :-)

I stick to my favourite Ottolenghi Recipe you can click to my step by step pictures here

The only extra I addeed to the basic recipe was I added 15 gm Rose flavoured sugar crystals to the mix.
 For the filling
200 gm melted white chocolate mixed with couple of tbsp of cream and 1 to 2 tsp of rose flavour strup.
Mix evertthing to a smooth paste, let it cool a but then you can sandwich the macarons.
I personally think the filled macarons are better one day later, Ikeep then in a air tight container in the fridge.


Sending this to Black and White Wednesday.
October is a month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awarness so sending this to Mactweets

Finla, these are so beautiful and appropriately pink for Pink October! Yes, we have talked about it before that our husbands do not like macs and I am proud of you that you got Hans to eat even one with his coffee! I also think it is all about the filling. Beautiful...

So pretty... I love macarons! I love the pink color. I wish to make it one day, but I probably should start baking from something easier than this since I'm not a baker. :-) Thanks for sharing this beautiful macarons!

What beautiful color and flavors! Macaron heaven.

Jill @ MadAboutMacarons said...

Your macarons are definitely pretty and pinkilicious, as Jamie and Deeba would say. Rose has to be one of my favourites and funnily enough, one of my husband's favs: not just for the ladies, eh? ;-)

Susan said...

Beauties, Finla, real beauties. Ottolenghi's cookbooks are among my favorites; I shall look up the recipe. They are too stunning to overlook. Thank you for joining in BWW.
