I know I’ve made macarons in the past, but this was somewhat inspired by a dream (and also the fact that my wife adores icewine truffles). The dream itself was strange, and dreams tend to be, but the more important thing is that these are the best shells I’ve made to date (usually I didn’t get such a nice dome).
I used a French meringue, as with my previous macarons, and I chose blue and purple because I wanted to try and have a “frostberry” theme with the finished product.
Honestly, the most difficult part was the truffle filling, in that it was, at first, underwhelming in taste. The ice wine flavor wasn’t truly noticeable until the next day.
