we used martha stewart’s easy french macarons recipe.  to this, we added a teaspoon of powdered espresso and half a teaspoon of coffee extract.

then we created an espresso buttercream with salted butter, espresso powder, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla.  we devoured them all delivered most of this batch to a lovely lady’s bridal shower.
