Pumpkin Macarons!

I love fall because it marks the beginning of pumpkin season for me and I LOOOOVE pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING.

When I found this pumpkin French macaron recipe and pumpkin filling recipe from Yummy Mummy, I wanted to make it right away.  I made this a few times and here is my version of the recipe.

Macaron Recipe from Martha Stewart *makes 40 macarons using my 1” macaron template
1 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup almond flour
2 large egg whites, room temperature
Pinch of cream of tartar
1/4 cup superfine sugar
1 tsp of pumpkin spice*
*I didn’t have pumpkin spice on hand so I used this recipe here. 
Follow Martha’s recipe instructions, adding pumpkin spice to the almond flour and confectioner’s sugar.

Pumpkin Frosting Filling adapted from Yummy Mummy
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup pumpkin purée
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 tsp of pumpkin spice (optional)
Beat all ingredients until smooth.

The filling did not have as much pumpkin flavor as I liked, this may be because I used organic pumpkin puree from Trader Joes, so I added a teaspoon of pumpkin spice for extra pumpkin flavor.

These were delicious and fulfilled my pumpkin fix!
