French Macarons

Ingredients and procedures

1. Prepare all the utensils needed in making this recipe:
- grease free bowls
- grease free spatula
- hand or stand mixer
- digital weighing scale
- food processor or blender

- 1/4 cup
- 1/4 teaspoon
- fine sieve
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
- grease free piping bag and a round tip (wilton tip number 12)


2. Weigh 120 grams of Almond Flour and 200 grams of Confectioner's Sugar. Mix together on a grease free bowl.

3. Process or blend the almond and sugar mixture until fine.

4. Sieve the processed almond and sugar mixture and set aside.

5. Weigh 100 grams of egg-white and beat on high until big bubbles appears.

6. Continue beating on a high speed while adding 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar and 1/4 cup granulated sugar (little at a time). Beat until stiff peaks form.

7. Add in 1/3 of the almond-sugar mixture and fold using a grease free spatula. Count for about 15 folds before adding the other 1/3 mixture and fold for another 15 counts then add the final 1/3 of the mixture. Fold until just mixed but not well blended (you can still see lumps and the almond-sugar mixture is not fully moist or incorporated.

8. Add your chosen color for the macaron. (Use gel type of food coloring)

9. Continue folding until the mixture forms a ribbon when tested. (Using your spatula, scoop out enough amount of the mixture, let the mixture drop slowly from your spatula without any hand movement. When it formed a back and forth motion upon reaching the bottom and without breaking the mixture is right and you're ready to pipe).

10. Place the mixture inside the piping bag and pipe on a parchment paper. Around 1 inch round and make sure to leave a space of about 1 1/2 inch or 2 inches between the piped mixture.

11. Bang the piped mixture to remove the air.

12. Let it dry for about an hour or 2. (When you touch the mixture, the batter won't stick to your finger)

13. Preheat the oven on 175 degree Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes. Gas mark 1.

14. Place the baking sheet with the piped mixture in the middle of the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

15. When done, let it cool completely before removing from the parchment paper.

16. Fill in with your favorite filling and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks!
- Prepare the egg-whites before hand to mature the egg. Probably overnight. Just place on a clean container with a lid and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator 10 minutes before using.
- When I say "Bang" Hit the baking sheet lined with the parchment paper and with the piped macaron batter on a solid flat area until you see the bubbles from the batter disappears.
- When baking in a batch, bake the first batch for 15 minutes, the second for about 20 minutes and the 3rd for 15 minutes. (This recipe will approximately use 3 baking sheets only - if you make more than 3, something is wrong with your mixture).
- Make sure to use digital weighing scale for accurate measurement.
- Use grease free utensils. Grease will highly affect your batter.

- When preparing your filling, try not to add any sugar in it so that it won't be too sweet when infused with the macaron shells.
- If you'll not gonna serve it immediately after baking, place in a tight container and place it in the freezer.
