Cook Time:


  • 1 cup(s) Tropical Food’s Diet Delight® Snack Mix separated
  • 1 cup(s) confectioners' sugar
  • 2 large egg whites room temperature
  • pinch(s) cream of tartar
  • ¼ cup(s) superfine sugar
  • ½ tablespoon(s) pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ cup(s) pumpkin purée
  • ¼ cup(s) cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoon(s) orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon(s) pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter softened
  • 1 cup(s) powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Separate nuts from raisins in Tropical Food’s Diet Delight®. Use a food processor to grind nuts to a powder, but do not let it grind to a butter.
  3. Sift the nut flour with confectioners’ sugar and pumpkin pie spice into a small bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until foamy; add cream of tartar and superfine sugar. Whip to a stiff peak.
  5. Sift nut flour over egg mixture and fold together. Scrape batter into a piping bag with round tip sized for desired macaron size.
  6. Pipe out identical rounds of batter and let sit until a light skin is formed.
  7. Lower oven to 325 degrees and bake macarons for 10 minutes, rotating halfway between.
  8. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then fill.
  9. To make filling, place raisins from Diet Delight® into a food processor and process until chopped. Add the remaining filling ingredients and process until well blended.
  10. Scrape into a bag and pipe a small amount sandwiched between two macarons.
