Raspberry Mascarpone Macarons

Was trying to hunt down pictures of Paris and this is the best that I could find. Love love love Laduree especially their macarons. Everything offered on their menu was exquisite. Definitely did not disappoint, well worth the 30 minute wait for a table.

Slightly carried away, not a Laduree review but a post featuring my homemade macarons with no food colouring. They would have looked much better in pink but I tend to avoid using colouring.

For the shells:

90 grams egg whites (left at least overnight in the fridge)

25 grams granulated sugar

200 grams icing sugar

110 grams ground almonds

For the filling:

110 grams mascarpone (at room temperature)

3 tablespoons raspberry jam

If you are interested in how I made them, there will be another blog post coming up, as I made them again with a blackcurrant filling.

Check out my macaron pops! *Heart* everything on a stick, you have to try them out sometime.

Excuse the ‘punctured’ macarons, was careless when I was handling them.


These were delicious! The mascarpone filling was creamy and complemented the raspberry conserve very well. The worst part is having to wait a day for the macarons to ‘mature’.

Are you a macaron fan?

    Iris, I’m jealous! I tried making macaroons before but it was a DISASTER of gargantuan proportions! But you’ve inspired me to give it another go. The lollipop idea is so cute, who can resist!
