Macaroon madness!


I felt like getting into a real project this evening. I followed the simplest recipe I could find online (delicious magazine) and it worked a treat. So few ingredients for such a sophisticated looking dessert, and tasty too. I’m thinking Mother’s Day present in a pretty little box with a ribbon on it.
Macaroons are essentially little meringues with ground almonds mixed in. Flavoured with whatever you like, I chose vanilla and then coloured them to make them super fancy. Piping bags are essential to get neat circles. A good tap of the baking tray before putting them in the oven is a very wise move (see recipe for details). No one wants a macaroon without a footing.


Pretty huh? I made some look funky by not mixing the food dye in fully and getting a swirl effect. I found a palette knife was the most effective way of filling them with buttercream without breaking them. If you just pop the broken ones in your mouth as you go along it avoids making a mess! 😛

    1. They were surprisingly easy to bake. Whatever recipe you choose you need to stick to the instructions carefully. Mine was 15 minutes at 140 fan and worked a treat! Good luck! 😛
