Fall Flavors at Bottega Louie

Great news! Now that it is officially fall, Bottega Louie has unveiled 3 new macarons featuring seasonal flavors. My hands down favorite was, of course, the pumpkin. I never get tired of pumpkin flavor, and it comes through clearly here. My second favorite was actually the chestnut apricot. The fruity and nutty flavors mix well together. I wasn't sure about this when combo I tried it, but I'm definitely a fan now. The caramelized cinnamon was the weak link for me. It has great potential, but I think the recipe needs to be tweaked so there is a little more cinnamon spice and a little less sweet caramel. Overall, though, these are great additions. I am now motivated to see what seasonal changes have been made to the dinner menu too!
