The Tuesdays with Dorie group made macarons two years ago from Baking Chez Moi. This recipe was a complete success for me and I looked forward to making them again. True to my statement I wanted to make these again and try a different filling. In reading the recipe in Dorie’s Cookies I noticed Mardi Michels name in the cookie and cream cheese filling recipes, I was all in to try our fellow baker’s recipe.

I did not have any troubles making the macarons or cream cheese filling but my color work needs some help. I don’t have a lot of experience with food dye. I followed the recipe on my food dye bottles for purple but clearly it was not enough. Oh, well something to work on with my next batch.

The reviews. I have enjoyed both fillings, salted caramel and cream cheese but my husband clearly favored the cream cheese. Mardi you have a new fan. Thank you for the recipe.

  1. YAY! These are pretty! And for the colour, I like the powders – they are much brighter than liquids most of the time!


  2. In my opinion, these macarons are lovely all around, including the color. I’d call it blush or barely pink, which I like a lot.


  3. BRAVO! Great looking macarons…and I love the blush color.

    These were devine. Yours are so pretty- I like the pale colour.


  5. i agree with the others– the color is lovely! when they are too bright, i find the artificial-ness a little off-putting.
