Trader Joe’s pumpkin macarons are incredible. They’re only at Trader Joe’s for a limited time, so snatch them up and hoard them like some sort of pastry dragon.
The shells have the perfect balance of crust and meringue. The filling is a fluffy, whipped cream that’s heavy with pumpkin spice. They’re pretty much everything I wish pumpkin pie was–no dry crust, no weird gelatinous texture. (I love pumpkin pie, but if you REALLY think about it, the texture is pretty weird.)
Anyway, go grab ’em. They’re significantly better than the chocolate and vanilla ones. Still $4.99 a dozen here.
