So I am writing everyday, yes, yes, we know this now (and my apologies). Today, I’ve decided to go with the BlogHer writing theme of the month which is play. Like think back to the good old days of kids enjoying time on swing sets (not the computer), soda pop in a bottle, television we actually watched as it aired and orange creamsicles.
Now remember orange cream soda, still widely available but not as trendy as it used to be (probably a good thing). Seriously though, Mmmm. Creamy, tangy goodness with fizzies, courtesy the fine folks at Stewart’s. Okay, so with the soda I’m only reminiscing to the 90’s. Still, I love the older popsicles, the younger drink, and both inspired these:
No surprise here, orange creamsicle macarons. The ultimate orange indulgence. Take a basic macaron recipe, add 2 teaspoons of orange zest to the meringue batter (plus orange food coloring), and whip together ½ cup of softened mascarpone cheese and 1 cup of the buttercream for the filling. Here’s to the good old days, new baking frontiers and all things orange and creamy. Cheers and happy Thursday!
