I remember seeing macarons talked about all over the place. Unfortunately they`re not an item that is readily available in my area. That`s where Trader Joe`s steps into play because it has been the only store that I have been able to find macarons. Granted, they`re not freshly made daily at a bakery ... but it`s the closest to the real deal I`m going to get. I`ve tried the different varieties of macarons at Trader Joe`s ... so needless to say when I spotted the Trader Joe`s Pumpkin Macarons I was on board before I could bat a lash.
Macarons are a delicious french dessert made from meringue confection which are filled with a delicious, complimentary spread. They resemble a cookie, but are soft, slightly crisp (along the `crust`) and just all around perfection. These pumpkin macarons have that slightly crisp edge to them as all macarons tend to have ... but I found the filling in these to be a lot softer and airier than the filling in other cookies. The pumpkin filling has the consistency of say a whipped pumpkin dip - where it`s pumpkin flavored, but light and airy in texture. It`s not bad, but it`s just different from the `norm` so to speak.
I found the cookies to be quite delicious. Airy, soft, delicious and pumpkin packed. They`re definitely not for the anti-pumpkin club but if you enjoy a good different pumpkin dessert .. these pumpkin macarons are for you. Plus there`s no long baking process involved ... all you have to do is allow the cookies to defrost and whatever you don`t eat goes right into the refrigerator.
A serving is 2 cookies which are 90 calories or 2 points plus values.
