Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a food processor, combine the powdered sugar and almond flour. Process until well combined and fine in texture. Sieve the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites using an electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add the granulated sugar while continuing to beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently fold the almond flour mixture into the beaten egg whites, using a spatula, until the batter is smooth and slightly runny. Add food coloring if desired and fold until evenly colored.
  4. Transfer the batter into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe small rounds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving space between each macaron shell.
  5. Tap the baking sheet on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles. Let the macaron shells sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to form a thin, dry crust.
  6. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Bake the macarons for 15-18 minutes until they are set and easily lift off the parchment paper. Let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Match similar-sized shells and fill them with your desired filling. Gently press the shells together to create a sandwich.
  8. Refrigerate the filled macarons for at least 24 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld and the texture to soften.

Tips and Tricks:

Use aged egg whites for better results. Separate the egg whites and let them sit in a covered container in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours before using.

Be gentle when folding the almond flour mixture into the beaten egg whites to avoid deflating the batter.

If you don't have a piping bag, you can use a ziplock bag with a small hole cut in one corner for piping the macaron shells.

Experiment with different flavors and fillings, such as chocolate ganache, raspberry jam, or citrus buttercream, to create a variety of macaron delights.
