This is the new and improved black sesame macarons with black sesame paste filling. I’ve swapped the white sesame seeds for black ones in the filling because of its slightly bitter aftertaste. I’d also thrown some decorative seeds on some of the shells before baking as an experiment. I’d put the seeds on only after baking in my previous attempt as I was worried that they’d burn in the oven.
I loved the fragrantly nutty flavour of this macaron. It’s now my second most favourite flavour after the dark chocolate ones.
These were some extras from a batch I’d baked for an order. Since I’m completely addicted to these little confections, it’s quite obvious where these maccies ended up and no wonder that my waistline is expanding these days!
