Ingredients of French Macarons Recipe
- Large egg whites at room temperature - 3
- Meringue powder - 1 Tablespoon
- Sugar - 3 Tablespoons
- Extra-fine ground almonds - 3/4 Cup
- Sifted icing sugar - 1 Cup
- Food coloring pastes
- Marmalade or curd fillings
How to Make French Macarons
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 300° F and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
Step 2: Now, whip together the egg whites and meringue powder until they are foamy, then slowly pour the sugar in and whip until the whites barely hold a soft peak when the beaters are lifted.
Step 3: Now, stir together the icing sugar and almonds and then gently fold this into the whipped whites in 2 additions.
Step 4: If you want to make color macarons then divide the batter into three bowls and stir in a touch of color into each.
Step 5: Now, fill three piping bags fitted with a plain tip with each of the batters and pipe the macarons that are 1 ½ inch wide and inch apart on the baking tray. Leave it to stand for about 15-30 minutes or until they develop a “skin.”
Step 6: Now, bake them for about 10 minutes or until they lift off the parchment paper using a spatula without sticking. Set aside and let them cool.
Step 7: Now, assemble the marmalade with using a pipe, or you can spread it to on the bottom of one macaron and press the bottom of a second onto it, press gently. Prepare all the macarons like this.
Step 8: You can store these macarons for about three days in airtight container.
