MAC ATTACK #26 - RAZZLE DAZZLE the Lemonchillo Macarons with Poppyseed Mascarpone


 OHMIGOSH - I swear "Procrastinating Queen" should be my middle name!  How do I always manage to miss deadlines?

Even if I am in time with baking/cooking things I always seem to be not on time when it comes to have my post up in time. I baked these goodies way back - right after New Year so to say and still I am 7 days overdue with posting.

RAZZLE DAZZLE was what Jamie and Deeba announced for the first Mactweets of 2012. RAZZLE DAZZLE!

I looked this one up because it confused me and I did not know how my Macs would fit in there...

Definition of RAZZLE-DAZZLE 1: a state of confusion or hilarity 2: a complex maneuver (as in sports) designed to confuse an opponent 3: a confusing or colorful often gaudy action or display

HA! Seems to describe my state of mind quite well....

Jamie and Deeba said:

Let's start off the New Year with a bang! Bright lights, outrageous colors, deck ourselves out to dazzle and welcome 2012 with vibrancy and excitement! The parties are over, the decorations are taken down and packed away, the goodies have all been gobbled and the festive spirit has faded away with the celebrations, the bubbly gone flat as we step outside to face the gloom of a dark January afternoon.

So I wanted to create macarons with a popping fresh color and some zingy taste that pop in your mouth and make you smile in the midst of this cold, grey and often dreary January days...

Lemonchillo Macarons with Poppyseed Mascarpone

MAC ATTACK #26 - RAZZLE DAZZLEAs base I used the basic recipe given in Helen's guide and Jamie's instructions again. Ingredients 3 egg whites (100gr) 50 gr granulated sugar 200 gr powdered sugar 110 gr blanched almonds ground 1 dash of lemon chillo (mine was homemade) Method - Please see Helen's guide for instructions!

 Poppyseed Mascarpone

115 gr mascarpone finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon (or lime) 1 teaspoon leomn or lime juice 4 tablespoons lemoncurd 4 tablespoons white poppyseeds soaked in 2 tablespoons warm milk

All you need to do now is to mix them all together, fill in a piping bag and pipe the filling on the macarons. I suggest you'll give the cream a good chill in the fridge for about an hour or so because this helps a lot with the piping ;o)

Aww thanks Lovely! I loved the flavors in these, one of my favorites so far!
I wanted to do some more and fancy/funny styling with the macs but the food coloring pencil was not cooperating too much so this one was the only one i liked ;o)
