Cake it Pretty: Apple Shaped Macarons with Caramel Apple Pie Filling



If you follow the Creative Juice Blog then you already know that I, Mindy Starr, have an obsession with macarons. And recently I have wanted to push the limits by creating unique shaped macarons - not just your typical macarons!

It has taken a lot of trial and error - especially with baking time and temp but I am excited to share with you one of our recent macarons, and they perfect for Fall CARAMEL APPLE PIE FILLING we filled them with!

CARAMEL APPLE PIE FILLING
{modified from the cupcake project}

1/4 cup apple butter
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 oz cream cheese 
2 t cinnamon
1 cup sifted powder sugar

1. melt butter in small saucepan
2. add in apple butter and brown sugar
3. bring to a boil and lower head to med low
4. boil for 2 min stirring consistently
5. add cinnamon, stir, remove from heat 
6. while still hot, add in cream cheese and stir until incorporated
7. once lukewarm, sift in powder sugar to desired consistency {note: it will thicken as it cools}


We used this filling for our apple back to school macarons {seen HERE}

Or you could go the traditional route...



We have lots of halloween, thanksgiving, and christmas macarons in store! Click here to see all of our macaron madness.

Happy entertaining!
