If you always go for the apple pie at Thanksgiving, you are going to love these apple pie macarons!

Inspired by the classic pie, these macarons are filled with a spiced apple compote.

I start with my Perfect Macaron Recipe and add three drops of chocolate brown, one drop of lemon yellow and one drop of orange gel food coloring to get a warm pie crust color.

Just after tapping out the air bubbles, I sprinkle over some cinnamon.  This adds a nice warm flavor and makes the macarons taste even more like a pie.

How to make the Apple Pie Macaron Fillings

This is a two part macaron filling-a ring of white chocolate ganache and a spiced apple compote.  The apple compote is like a mix between an apple sauce and an apple jam.

White Chocolate Ganache

To make the ganache, warm the heavy cream in a pan to a simmer.  Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it sit for several minutes.  Add in one drop each of chocolate brown, lemon yellow, and orange gel food coloring to match the color of the apple compote.  Stir until all of the chocolate has melted and the ganache is silky and smooth.  Pour into a piping bag and cool to room temperature.

Spiced Apple Compote

To make the compote, all of the ingredients are added to a pan and cooked over medium low heat until the apples are tender, about 30 minutes.

Next, purée the compote so it is easy to pipe onto the macarons.  I have a Cuisinart emersion blender with a mini food chopper, perfect for small tasks like this.

Pipe a ring of the ganache to form a base and fill the center with the apple compote.  Pair with a matching shell to make a perfect apple pie macaron!

After you have filled the macarons, let them sit for a day or two.  Something magical happens-the filling and the shells merge to form the perfect texture!  Be sure to check out my Perfect Macaron Recipe for all of my baking tips and tricks!
