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 :-)
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.
