Cream of Earl Grey Macarons

Early Grey Macarons

Overall a success but I am learning that I really need a food possessor.  Basic macarons, with some tea leaves in the cookie and filled with an early grey buttercream. I wanted them to be a little more purple, but I was too afraid of over whipping them to mix in more food colouring.

Buttercream recipe from Amy's Food Adventures

1/4 cup butter butter softened
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 tsp earl grey tea leaves
2 tbsp milk

1. Steep the tea leaves in hot milk for 5 min,
2. beat the butter until fluffy
3. slowly add sugar and continue to beat on a low speed
4. ad milk and tea leaves together and beat until smooth.


  1. Nice! Try the ganache version of the earl grey filling; it's amazing! And don't be afraid to mix the batter more (during macaronnage) so that the shells will be smoother on top :)

    1. Thanks I will definitely try to get over my over mixing fear. Do you use a food processor first on the icing sugar and almond flour?

  2. These were delicious five stars
