I’ve been making a lot of macarons this year and I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with different flavor combinations. These Pumpkin Spice Macarons are the perfect cookie to nibble on while you sip on a pumpkin spice latte and and enjoy the crisp autumn breeze. These little cookies are full of pumpkin spice flavor and a beautiful orange color! Plus the vanilla bean buttercream filling is just delicious!
What you need for Pumpkin Spice Macarons:
What you need for Vanilla-Bean Buttercream:
- unsalted butter, room temperature
- Dixie Crystals Confectioners Powdered Sugar
- vanilla bean paste or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- milk or heavy cream
Using different flavored buttercreams and fillings:
I picked a vanilla bean buttercream for these Pumpkin Spice Macarons because I liked the way it paired with the Pumpkin Spice cookie shell but you would totally change that up if you wanted to.
You could make a cream cheese frosting to sandwich in the middle of these Pumpkin Spice Macarons or maybe even a brown butter cinnamon sugar frosting. I personally love pumpkin spice and chocolate together so I think a chocolate ganache filling would be delicious as well.
