Powdered Sugar

This is one of the main ingredients so try to use a good brand and make sure it’s not moist. /p>

You can buy almond flour or you can make your own in the food processor by granding almonds

Egg whites

Another star ingredient of macaron, the egg whites make all the difference, so use fresh, free range eggs. Make sure your eggs are room temperature before you start

How to make Macaron

Step 2

Whisk the egg whites with sugar until they form stiff peaks.

Step 3

Gently mix in the powder sugar and almond meal/flour. Don’t use the mixer for this step. Optionally add a few drops of organic food coloring.

Step 4

Step 5

Let them rest for 20-30 minutes.

Pasul 6

Bake for 15 minutes. When they’ve cooled, finish them with filling of your chose ( we went with chocolate ganache).
