Indian Spiced Macarons!

After a couple of failed attempts, I eventually found success making macarons at home. I wanted to experiment with a couple of Indian flavours including: 

  • Chai Spiced Coconut Macaron
  • Garam Masala Chocolate Macaron

The flavour combinations were delightful and unlike any that I've seen in pastry shops around town. Below, are the recipes for two different filling I tried.
