Clementine Curd Macarons

After shooting at Le French Fix last week, I got it in my head that I wanted to make French Macarons.

Well boy, did I. I attempted Macarons THREE times over Christmas - and my last batch STILL weren't quite right (although you'd never know by looking at the pictures in this post). You see, almost every one of my macarons were hollow inside BUT, I think I know how to next time fix the problem, which, let's get real, will probably be tomorrow.

I forget where I got the recipe for the curd, which sucks because I like to give credit where credit is due. I wrote it down in my recipe notebook ages ago. The original recipe calls for lemon, which is SO delicious, but I thought it would be fun to try it with the Christmas Clementines I just got. If anyone recognizes the recipe, let me know? Also, I found it so much easier to just throw everything in one pot, whisk it together and then cook it instead of lugging out (and cleaning) my KitchenAid Stand Mixer first.

Clementine Curd

Zest and Juice of 4 Clementines (or 3 lemons - you need 1/2 Cup juice)

1 Cup Sugar

5 Egg Yolks

1/8 tsp Kosher Salt

1/2 Cup Butter

Zest your Clementines right into the pot you're going to cook the curd in - add Juice, Sugar, Yolks and Kosher Salt - whisk to combine - add butter and cook over medium/low heat until thick - about 10 minutes - pour into jars and enjoy!
