My sister has become pretty obsessed with my macarons. She even requested some for her company, Found‘s quarterly review. I still think it’s pretty amazing that my sister works for a company whose colour is purple. It’s her favourite. So deciding what colour the macarons had to be was easy, but I wasn’t sure what flavour to make them. Most purple macarons I’ve seen are lavender, not my favourite, so I went for blueberry because it creates the perfect purple and I knew my sister would like it. For the filling I used both blueberry jam and fresh blueberries. I hope everyone enjoys them!
(for approx 36 whole macarons)
500g icing sugar
160g unsalted butter (room temperature)
3 tbsp blueberry jam
splash of milk
a large handful of fresh blueberries
Beat together the icing sugar, butter and milk. Then add the jam and mix until smooth. Add in the fresh blueberries and mix until the berries are broken up in to large pieces.
