J' Adore Macaroons [plus bonus recipe]


 

Macaroons are tiny, light, and super-cute little treats,
that you can make with literally only 3 things.
Sugar, eggs and almonds.




They may look tricky but if you achieve them ones,
 you never stop :)
I think that the secret is to leave the egg whites get aged (of course in the fridge for about 3 days)
and to fold 'gently' the almond and the sugar, into the meringue.


 
  1. Preheat oven to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
  2. Whisk egg whites in a clean metal mixing bowl until thick, about 5 minutes; whisk the superfine sugar into the egg whites until thick, glossy, and the mixture holds stiff peaks, 5 to 8 more minutes. Place a sieve over the bowl containing egg whites and sieve both amounts of almond meal and confectioners' sugar into the egg white mixture. Gently fold the almond meal and confectioners' sugar into the egg whites, retaining as much air as possible.
  3. Separate the meringue into separate bowls to flavor and color, if desired. Spoon the meringue into a piping bag fitted with a 3/8-inch tip. Pipe 1-inch disks of meringue onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between cookies.
  4. Let the cookies stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes to form a thin skin. Pick up the baking sheets and let drop from several inches above the work surface to adhere cookies to the baking sheets.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are dry, about 15 minutes; let cool completely on the baking sheets before peeling off the parchment paper.

    (I found the recipe at
    allrecipes.com/recipe/french-macaroons/)


After I baked mine, I used chocolate ganache creme.
Hope you like them :)
