Made: Black Sesame Macarons with black sesame buttercream filling
Made these today....
Green tea and carrot ones will just have to wait.
Used the same old recipe from Not so Humble Pie, but used only 200g icing sugar instead of 225g. Added in 25g of ground black sesame.
Actually I didn't mean to reduce the icing sugar, but 200g was all I have in my pack, and I was really too lazy to open a new pack... so decided to take a risk with just 200g. Don't think I'll ever make a great chef, seeing how lazy I am!
Finding my usual buttercream a tad too sweet, I also reduced the sugar by 20%, so 1 egg white this time, I used only 40g of sugar.
