Ingredients

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 113 grams butter unsalted, room temperature
  • 113 grams cream cheese room temp, Philadelphia
  • 240 grams powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp milk divided

Fresh Peach Jam

  • 2 peaches cut into 1/4” dice
  • 50 grams granulated sugar
  • juice from one lemon

Instructions

Make the Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Before you begin, make sure the butter and cream cheese are at room temperature.
  • In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, whip the room temperature butter on medium-high speed for five minutes.  You will see a dramatic change-it will go from yellow to bright white and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add in the cream cheese.  Mix for another two minutes to completely combine. 
  • Sift the powdered sugar and add into the mixer in two batches, scraping the sides of the bowl in between. Let the mixer run for about 4 minutes and the frosting will be thick and velvety.  
  • Add the vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of milk and mix to combine.  

Make the Fresh Peach Jam

  • Dice the peaches into 1/4 inch pieces.
  • In a heavy bottom pan, combine the peaches, sugar, and lemon juice. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Press down on the peaches with the back of a spoon to break up most of the large chunks. Let the jam cool before transferring to a piping bag.

Fill the Macarons

  • Pair matching macaron shells and pipe the frosting onto the center of one shell. Pipe about 1/4 tsp of peach jam into the center of the frosting and cover with the matching shell.
  • Let the macarons rest in the refrigerator for 24 hours before enjoying!

Notes

  • If fresh peaches are not in season, uset your favorite peach jam!
