Oh the weather outside is frightful… so let’s embrace it! If you’re looking for some cold-weather party inspiration then you’ve come to the right spot. Onida Cruz of Petite Seats worked collaboratively with a team of vendors to produce today’s Winter Wonderland, petite-sized styled shoot. And my, oh, my is it a gorgeous one! Complete with angel wings, a grand table setting, and a dessert table to rival even the sweetest dreams, this is one children’s party your little munchkin wouldn’t want to miss. Inspired by the heavenly desserts, we’ve added our own Winter White Chocolate Macarons recipe to the mix. It’s time to put on a shawl and come outside to play in the snow because the weather is certainly divine!
WINTER WHITE CHOCOLATE MACARONS
- 2/3 cup of white chocolate
- 1/2 cup of almond flour
- 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of confectioners’ sugar
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
- Egg whites from 3 eggs
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit. Cover two cookie sheets in parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a stand mixer combine the egg whites, granulated sugar, and cream of tartar. Mix thoroughly until stiff peaks are formed (approximately 10 minutes).
- Add the almond flour and confectioners’ sugar into the mixture. Use a spatula to mix until the batter is thoroughly combined. Make sure not to mix to the point where the batter becomes watery.
- Fill a piping bag (or large ziplock bag with a corner tip cut off) with the batter and pipe approximately 2 inch round cookies onto the cookie sheets, about 1 inch apart. Leave the cookie sheets out to settle for approximately 1 hour.
- Place the cookies in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until fully cooked through (the cookie should be crispy to the touch). Remove and let cool.
- To make the chocolate filling, simply melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Do this in increments of 30 seconds, making sure not to burn the chocolate. Only melt the chocolate once the cookies are ready to be filled. Fill a piping bag with the melted chocolate or use a teaspoon to fill the cookies. Put the filling onto one side of a macaron cookie, almost to the edge. Sandwich it with another cookie and voila! Enjoy!
