Pour Commencer l'Année en Douceur~
They look like little pastry shop treats..
If mine turned out..yours will also..
They are as femininely dainty as can be~
They could be served at this shop and be so appropriate!
I used 3 egg whites I let them sit out of the fridge ap 15 min
150 gr of ultra fine sugar
pinch of salt
a tsp of vinegar..
Rose Wilton food coloring.. gel..
I beat my egg whites in the KA.. slowly poured the sugar..added the pinch of salt and then the vinegar.. I used a small 1/4 inch wood stick..to dab some food coloring..
I had glossy stiff pale pink peaks..
I filled a pastry bag w/ a big funneled tip..
And made the meringues on my Silpat..
I baked on convection about 210 F.. for ap 1/2 hr and they were done.
I love these and can see my future having many colors:)
They kept their shape.. and taste just like I thought they would..
A lovely, sweet ... and petite beginning to the New Year..
Footnote..I was asked about the tip I used..at the back you can see the regular tips we use..and at the front are my larger ones..I use a plastic snip off end bag..I have an accoutrement for the larger ones also but didn't use it..just snipped the bag..placed the tip..added the stiff meringue mixture and piped..I wish I knew how to use all these tips:) The round one at the front is for the next time I try Macarons.I am so in love with how they look..If you missed Julia's December posts..Go see:)You are in for a treat.Perfect macarons..all different and festive and beautiful~
I hope this helps.Bonne Chance~
