How to Make Macarons!

Make Your Own Macarons!

Everyone can appreciate a good macaron. Learning how to make macarons at home is great especially if macarons are hard to find in your area or when they’re too expensive to buy. Macarons aren’t the easiest sweets to bake so it’ll take a little patience and practice, but don’t let that stop you. Homemade macarons are simply delicious and you’ll be a pro at making them eventually. Here’s a recipe for yummy macarons:
 
Ingredients
 
3 egg whites
1/4 cup white sugar
1 2/3 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 cup ground almonds
 
Directions
 
1. Take a silicone baking mat and line a baking sheet with it.
2. Beat the egg whites in a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Beat them until the egg whites get foamy. Add in white sugar and keep beating until the whites are fluffy and glossy. Sift confectioner’s sugar and ground almonds in a separate bowl and fold the almond mixture into the egg whites. 30 strokes should be enough.
3. Put a small amount of batter into a plastic bag with a small corner cut off and pipe a test disk of batter onto a prepared baking sheet. If the disk of batter holds a peak instead of immediately flattening, gently fold the batter a few more times.
4. When batter is mixed enough to flatten into an even disk, spoon into a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tip. Pipe the batter onto the baking sheet, making sure to leave space between the disks. Let the piped cookies stand out at room temperature until they harden on top. This should take about 1 hour.  
5. Preheat the oven to 285 degrees F.
 
6. Bake the macaron cookies for about 12 minutes until they set. Make sure they aren’t browned. Be sure to let the macaron cookies cool thoroughly before filling them with ganache or buttercream.

 
Eat and enjoy!
