Welcome to Fall!!!
The days and nights are finally getting cooler here on the central coast. This makes one feel more in the appropriate holiday spirit, as Thanksgiving is just around the corner. In honor of the season of cold noses being tickled by mugs of steamy chai lattes (or hot cocoas), I decided to play around with the combination of pumpkin and chai.
As I hadn't played with macarons in a stretch, I thought, what better way to dive back in to experiments (which might be successful*).
The shell is where the chai flavor is coming from, and then the filling is the silky, mild pumpkin spiced buttercream.
I hope you can try it while it is the season!
The colors in these apples, pomegranates, Turks Turbans, and grape leaves capture so much of what I think of fall! Go jump in a pile of leaves. It's okay, I give you permission. :)
