I’m away from my blog for Mardi Gras…. over on Mad about Macarons!

Yeah yeah yeah, it’s Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday. The day I used to dread when I was little because, you just KNOW that other little kids delighted in calling me “Fat Tuesday”. In any case, I’m kinda sorta over that and instead of sulking in a corner, I am embracing Mardi Gras and celebrating – over on my friend Jill’s site, Mad about Macarons.

I thought I’d make something to use up the umpteen egg yolks that come from being a manic macaron baker so a curd it was. Raspberry curd inside chocolate pie shells, topped with fresh raspberries and drizzled with melted chocolate. Don’t they look good?

So what are you waiting for?

Go to Mad about Macarons and get the recipe now!  Happy Mardi Gras!!!

    Mardi, we NEVER called it Fat Tuesday. What a horrible name and so sorry to hear of insensitive sillies when you were younger. Much prefer Mardi Gras or Shrove Tuesday. Thanks for sharing these with us over at Mad About Macarons today.

    At first I DID think these were tartlets from TWD! But I’m loving that you filled these with yummy curd 🙂
