Macaroning with Hafsa

Hi dolls!

Hope everyone is doing fabulous on this rainy wednesday night. A few weekends ago, my girl Hafsa and I decided to get together to make Macaron’s! Now I did it once before and it worked out perfectly.. this time we had a few bumps along the road but thats mostly because we were goofing off the whole time. We used ‘Beth’s fool proof recipe’ that my cousin sent to me and it’s the only video that is very detailed in terms of making the perfect Macaron! Now without further ado, let’s get started!

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Sift your almond flour and icing sugar into a bowl. During this time, you also want to make sure your eggs are at room temperature. If they are not, throw them in a bowl of luke warm water for about 3 minutes and they will be ready to go!

Step 2: Prepare your egg whites (make sure to not get any yolk inside) and turn on your mixer to a medium speed.

Step 3: Add a pinch of salt and your cream of tarter.

Step 4: Mix on medium-high speed until you reach stiff peaks. You should be able to put the bowl over your head without the mixture falling! At this point, you should add a drop of your favorite food coloring. We unfortunately forgot and had to mix it by hand later which was also okay!

Step 5: It’s time to mix your dry and wet mixture together. Make sure you fold slowly and do not over mix with your spatula! Once everything is well incorporated and is a thick consistency, pour it into a piping bag and get ready to make little circles!

Step 6: On a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, pipe out 1 inch rounds! Then, tap the cookie sheet 3 times and let the macaron’s sit out for 30 minutes.

Step 7: Bake your macaron’s for 20 minutes and let them cool before you start assembling them with your butter cream mixture.
