Why I Chose Pineapple OG for My Vanilla Macarons: A Terpene Induced Decision

For our latest culinary adventure, we’ve embraced the vibrant, uplifting energy of a fresh batch of Pineapple OG THCA flower—a classic West Coast strain and a personal favorite for its spirited sativa qualities. This strain not only elevates the spirit but also infuses our vanilla macarons with a symphony of flavors, thanks to its unique profile of terpenes.

Delving into the essence of Pineapple OG, we find Pinene, offering a crisp, pine-like aroma that introduces a refreshing twist to the soft, sweet canvas of vanilla. It adds a subtle herbal note, which brings a delightful complexity to each bite. Caryophyllene follows, with its spicy, peppery undertones that weave warmth into the creamy vanilla, creating a balance that tantalizes the palate. Myrcene enriches this experience, lending a musky depth that rounds out the vanilla's richness, akin to ripe fruits melting on your tongue. The inclusion of Valencene adds a zesty, citrus flourish that enhances the vanilla's natural sweetness, reminiscent of a sunny Sicilian orchard. Lastly, Terpinolene brings a floral and herbal bouquet, lifting the vanilla to new aromatic heights, ensuring that each macaron is nothing short of a masterpiece.

While Pineapple OG holds a special place in my kitchen for its vibrant, sativa-driven energy and unique flavor profile, it's just one of many strains that can enchant your culinary creations. Each strain carries its own signature terpenes, the natural compounds responsible for flavor and aroma, that can enhance, transform, or subtly shift the flavors of these delicate vanilla macarons. If you decide to experiment with different cannabis strains, please share your experiences and let us know how various terpenes play with the flavors of your macarons. Now, as we prepare to bring our Pineapple OG-infused vanilla macarons to life, gather your apron and ingredients with a spirit of adventure. Below, you’ll find everything needed to start this culinary journey. Let’s create, taste, and share the magic of cannabis-infused baking!

Final Flourishes: Techniques for Perfect THC Macarons

Making the Macaron Shells:

  1. Prep:
    • Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C).
    • Sift the almond flour and powdered sugar together to ensure a smooth mixture.
  2. Whisk the Egg Whites:
    • In a clean, dry bowl, whisk the egg whites until they start to foam.
    • Gradually add the granulated sugar as you continue to beat until stiff peaks form. If using, add a few drops of food coloring.
  3. Fold:
    • Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg whites. Stop when the mixture flows like lava.
  4. Pipe:
    • Fill a piping bag with the batter and pipe small rounds onto the prepared baking sheets.
    • Tap the sheets firmly to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Rest:
    • Let the macarons sit at room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes until they form a skin and are no longer sticky to touch.
  6. Bake:
    • Bake for about 15-18 minutes. Let them cool completely before removing from the baking sheet.

Making the Cannabis-Infused Filling:

  1. Mix Ingredients:
    • In a bowl, cream together the cannabutter and powdered sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. This involves beating them together until well incorporated and smooth, ensuring the filling is evenly mixed.
    • Add vanilla extract and a pinch of salt, then continue to beat until everything is thoroughly combined.
    • (For detailed steps on how to make cannabutter, refer to our cannabutter preparation guide below.)
  2. Assemble:
    • Match macaron shells in pairs by size.
    • Pipe or spread the filling onto the flat side of one shell of each pair, then gently press the second shell on top.


  • Dosage: Start with a small portion of macarons to understand the effects, as THC potency can vary.
  • Yield: This recipe should yield approximately 20-24 macarons, depending on the size you pipe them.
  • Storage: Store macarons in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week to maintain freshness and potency.

Feel free to adjust the color and flavor of your macarons to suit your personal taste!
