Recipe : Colorful cute sweet petite macaroons

Looked a glance on the recipe, will think that making macaroons is so easy peasy, but actually no. Seems like need skills on doing that, first piping skill, baking skill etc…
Our first attempt making it, we undercooked and end up not really fluffy as what we expected. Although the appearance was not perfect but it tastes yummy. Super suitable for people who love sweet tooth♥IMG_1292
My first attempt, totally failed on piping hahah (shame on me >.<) . Piped it too big heuheheu..become huge macaroons –_-“
Anyway I make it better on my second attempt yeay :D
  • 175g icing sugar
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 3 large free-range egg whites
  • 75g caster sugar
For the filling
  • 150g butter, softened
  • 75g icing sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 160C
  2. Bake the almond for a while to make it dryer, set a side and let it cool first before blend it in a food processor to a very fine and mix it with the icing sugar (dry mixture)
  3. Whisk the egg whites  + pinch of salt + caster sugar( gradually) until thick and glossy (wet/ meringue mixture)
  4. IMG_1342Divide the meringue mixture among different bowls if you want to make more than one colour and more than one flavour.
  5. Fold the dry mixture into the meringue and mix well, make sure it is shiny, thick and has ribbon-like consistency.
  6. Spoon into piping bag with a 1 cm plain nozzle
  7. Pipe small rounds onto the baking sheet and let it sits for 15 – 20 minutes on room temperature to form a slight skin (try to use ur finger to touch them lightly and make sure that it doesn’t stick to ur finger)
  8. Happy baking after that for 15 mins (tips: try to use wooden chopstick to hold the oven’s door meanings that the oven’s door slightly open)
  9. Let’s them cool and meanwhile make the fillings (first beat the butter till light and fluffy then beat in the icing sugar and add ur flavorings or color or nuts etc into it and you are almost done)
  10. Use two macaroons and sandwich them together with fillings in the middle and your njoy your macaroons
