French Macarons

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.

Can't wait to try it out! :)
I had my first macaron yesterday - it was so exciting, just like when you're a child and you do something for the first time in your life ;)
They're really expensive, though. So thanks heaps for sharing this recipe!

Love, Lily

WOW you make it look so easy! I love macarons, but it has became a trend in my country now which is a good chance for money makers to mark up the price and one box is really so pricey and the worst thing is not all of them taste good
