How to: Macaroons!

Hello! So the other day I decided I was going to make macaroons. They weren't too difficult, you just have to make sure you don't under or over cook them. If you under cook them they can be difficult to get off the baking sheet!

 Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and put the whites in a fairly large bowl.

 Whisk the whites until quite thick!

 Add the caster sugar and whisk (I forget to take a photo of this!)
Sieve in the icing sugar.

Sieve in the almonds and fold the icing sugar and almonds in.

Add the flavor you want and add the food colouring!

Using a piping bag, pipe equal (as equal as you can!) circles onto a baking sheet or grease proof paper!
Leave to rest for 15 minutes, after 15 minutes drop the tray from a small height!

Put in the oven at about 160 degrees celsius for around 15 minutes

Make your filling, I used butter icing! (Icing sugar and Margarine mixed together!)

Wait until the macaroons are cold, fill them with your filling and find a partner for each!


I like doing baking posts as I'm trying to get into baking more! Do you guys like them and do you have any requests for things I could bake and show you?
