Today has been a very eventful one, my friend and I decided to make French Macarons and they were a big success! Here is the recipe and method we used. Enjoy!
1 cup Confectioners sugar
3/4 cup Ground Almonds
2 Eggs Whites
1 teaspoon Rasberry Essence
1 teaspoon Red Food Colouring
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
One: Sieve sugar & almonds together in a large bowl then process them until smooth & combined.
Two: Separate egg whites & beat until soft peaks form.
Three: Add caster sugar, essence & food coloring and combine until the colour is smooth.
Four: Mix wet & dry ingredients and fold until mixture reaches the consistency of lava.
Five: Pipe mixture into a baking tray lined with baking paper. (tracing a glass helps to keep them all the same size) Leave to rest for 30 minutes or until the macarons have a hard shell on top.
Six: Put in oven at 160 °C for 20 minutes. When cooled down pipe buttercream icing in the middle and sandwich together.
