How to Make Macarons
In a food processor add the almond meal and powder sugar. Process for 20 seconds until finely ground
1
Sift the almond meal, powdered sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl
2
In a small pot add the sugar and water for the sugar syrup. Set it on the stove
3
Add half of the room temp whites and a little cream of tartar to the mixer and turn on medium low
4
Whip the whites until foamy then slowly pour in the second sugar. Turn speed up to medium and whip
5
When the whites have soft peaks keep beating and start boiling the pot of sugar on high until 240 F
6
When it hits 240, slowly and carefully stream in the hot sugar syrup. Then whip on high speed
7
While the whites whip, combine the other half of the egg whites with the dries to form a paste
8
After about 4 minutes, the whites should look very stiff and fill the whisk
9
Add 1/3 of the whites to the paste and mix vigorously until combined
10
Continue with another 1/3 of the whites and fold it in gently. Then fold in the last 1/3
11
Scrape the batter against the bowl then let it fall from the spatula. It should fall in slow ribbons
12
On the back side of a sheet tray, lay a piece of flat parchment
13
Pipe directly above the tray with a round tip just slightly above (not touching) the parchment
14
Dab a small amount of batter in the corners so the parchment doesn’t move while baking
15
Knock the tray against a table a few times on each side to release any air bubbles
16
Pop any remaining holes and bubbles with a toothpick. Then leave to form a “skin” for 10-30 minutes
17
The skin has formed when you can touch the shell and it doesn’t stick to your finger and looks matte
18
Bake at 325 for 12 minutes! They’re done when the top of the shell moves just slightly when touched
19
Fill and refrigerate overnight! Enjoy at room temperature
