Halloween Treats - Monogram Macarons and Jack-O'-Macs

Even though it looks more like Christmas than Halloween this snowy weekend in NYC, the spirit of the Great Pumpkin (gotta love Charlie Brown) is in full swing at Curlicue headquarters.  While calligraphy is my great love, baking is a close second.

My baking obsession for the last year has been to master the French macaron. This sweet confection is elegant, delicate and beautiful to look at - just like calligraphy.  So why not combine my two obsessions?

I made a box of festive treats for my sister-in-law and monogrammed a couple of fleur de sel caramel macarons and nestled them amongst a patch of Pumpkin Spice "Jack-O-Macs."  Happy Halloween!

My first monogrammed macarons for my sister and brother-in-law.  Who would have thought that the smooth surface of a macaron would make an ideal little writing canvas?
