Lemon Cheesecake Macarons are one of my favorite flavors to make – the tartness from the lemon curd balances out the sweetness of the macaron shells really well. The filling is also extremely quick to make, you just hand stir three ingredients: lemon curd, whipped cream cheese and lemon – these macarons are one of the easiest flavors to make.
I use the Swiss meringue method for these macarons, with a few unconventional steps – you can read more about these techniques in my original Swiss Method Macaron Recipe here, there are also tips & tricks in ⬅️ that post if you’re new to making macarons.

This Lemon Cheesecake is the easiest filling to make, I love that you don’t need to use a stand mixer, just stir the ingredients in a bowl with a whisk until smooth.
