Recipe Ingredients for Almond Macarons


For Shells:
3 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup finely ground almonds
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup caramel sauce

For the boiling syrup:
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

Recipe Directions for Almond Macarons

  1. Sift the ground almonds and powdered sugar.

  2. In a stand mixer, whip 60 gr. egg whites to soft peaks, add 35 gr. sugar.

  3. In the meantime, in a saucepan on high heat bring the water and sugar for the syrup to 230 F. on a candy thermometer. Slowly add the boiling syrup to the egg whites and continue to whip on medium - high speed until they are completely cooled and you have a shiny meringue (10-15 minutes).

  4. Mix the remaining 60 gr. of egg whites and the sifted almond/sugar and carefully fold into the meringue.

  5. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip with the mixture and pipe macarons about 3 inches in diameter on parchment paper lined baking sheet. You can let them sit at room temperature for 20 minutes if desired. This is often done to assure those little feet at the bottom but I found that I can skip this step with this recipe and still end up with the same result.

  6. Bake at 320 for 15 minutes. Let cool.

  7. Fill the macarons shells with caramel ... and eat!
