Just when I thought French Macarons couldn’t get any better, I made these Lemon Blueberry Macarons! Wow, I think these might be my favorite cookies ever! A lemon flavored French Macaron shell sandwiched with lemon buttercream and a dollop of Blueberry Lemon Preserves.
I was inspired to make Lemon Blueberry Macarons while I was making a batch of Blueberry Lemon Preserves. I love the lightly lemony flavor of the preserves and thought it would make a nice cookie filling.
I considered making a jam thumbprint cookie, or a linzer cookie, or filled shortbread, but then I figured it was time to make another French Macaron. Since the preserves are too soft to stay in a sandwich cookie, I devised a way to put the preserves in the middle of my typical French macaron buttercream filling.
The result was even better than I’d imagined. I have made many a delicious French Macaron over the years. Some of my favorites have been raspberry-rose, cardamom and chocolate. As of now, Lemon Blueberry Macaron is my new favorite macaron.
Not only are they insanely delicious, Lemon Blueberry Macarons are so pretty. When you take a bite, the purple preserves burst out of the yellow cookie. Lovely!
