Valentine Macarons!!

Strawberry Macarons with White Chocolate Lemon Ganache! Yummy!

For Valentine’s Day, I made macarons… but not just any traditional macarons, I decided to get creative. ย And boy did they turn out delicious!!

I made Strawberry Macaron cookie shells, but with two different fillings.

The first filling was a White Chocolate Lemon Ganache. The tart flavour of the fresh lemon with the sweet of the white chocolate makes a perfect pairing, with neither overpowering the other And then combined with the strawberry cookie shells, and you couldn’t ask for a better combination! ๐Ÿ™‚

The second filling I made was a Basil Buttercream. Yum! The buttercream tastes amazing because I used fresh basil leaves which I infused. But it’s not a savory filling per se, rather a sweet buttercream with herbal notes. And basil is a perfect pairing with the sweetness of berries, and in this case, strawberry cookie shells. ๐Ÿ™‚
