How To Make Macarons – Easy & Thorough Guide

How To Make Macarons – Easy & Thorough Guide

Ingredients

  • 210 g Confectioners Sugar
  • 210 g Super Fine Almond Flour
  • 150 g Egg Whites divided
  • 190 g Sugar
  • 60 mL Water
  • (Optional) Gel Food Coloring

InstructionsDry Ingredients

  1. Place almond flour and confectioners sugar into food processor pulse about 20 times. Sift into bowl large bowl discarding any large pieces. Do not push large pieces through sifter. Then add 75g of egg whites into the bowl. Thoroughly mix together to form a paste. Feel free to be aggressive with your mixing. When combined cover and set aside.

Making the Meringue

  1. Add remaining 75g of egg whites into a stand mixer and set aside. Meanwhile add white sugar and water into a small pot and turn on medium-high. Once mixture heats to 110°C (230°F) turn on stand mixer to high and beat egg whites.
  2. When sugar mixture reaches 118°C (244°F) and egg whites have reached stiff peaks (but not dry) slowly drizzle the sugar mixture into the beating egg whites ensuring that the stream is slow and is drizzling down the side of the bowl.
  3. Continue to beat the meringue until it reaches the ‘bird beak’ stage. Add food coloring if desired at this point and quickly mix into meringue without overmixing.

Macaronage

  1. Add a large dollop of meringue (about 1/3) into the almond mixture paste. Work meringue dollop into paste to loosen up the paste to make it easier to work with. Do not be afraid of being aggressive at this point we do not need to worry about knocking the air out of this small amount.
  2. Add the rest of the meringue into the bowl and fold it into the paste mixture to combine. Be gentle and careful not to overmix or over-deflate the meringue. The mixture is ready to be piped when it ribbons off your spatula. If it is coming off in large V shaped chunks it still needs to be folded further.

Piping and Drying the Macarons

  1. Add mixture into a piping bag with medium to large sized round tip. Pipe small circles of batter onto a cookie sheet fitted with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Ensure piping bag is held straight up and perpendicular to baking sheet. Using a stencil or a macaron mat makes this process much easier and fool proof I try to make my macarons around 1½” in diameter.
  2. Tap the baking sheet multiple times against counter to remove any air bubble from the macarons. If some air bubbles still remain use a tooth pick to gently poke them out.
  3. Preheat oven to 300°F or 275°F for convection oven. While oven is preheating allow the macarons to sit and form a skin. This skin will ensure the macarons bake up and not out giving them those classic “feet”. This skin should form within 30 minutes to an hour. You know the macarons are ready to be baked when you can touch them and graze your finger across them lightly without having the batter stick to your finger.

Baking & Filling

  1. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Your bake time will depend on the size of your macarons. Check at 15 minutes and if they are not ready then keep checking every minute. The macarons are ready when the tops are firm and do not move around their base at all.
  2. Allow the macarons to cool completely before attempting to remove them from the sheets/mats/parchment. When cooled find “perfect pairs” of macaron halves and set aside to be filled with your choice of filling.
