Pretty Dainty little Macarons~
Turquoise..with Nutella filling~
They are so much fun to decorate too~
Hmm ..yes..mais oui ..Mother Nature played a little trick on us.
Not a fun trick..
Just snow..freezing rain etc..Friday April 12th~I guess Friday the 13th ...would have been more appropriate
So used to inclement weather..it really didn't phase me..
It is not as if I must go out and show homes anymore...
So I made macarons..much more delicious an activity..peace wise..
I have made them before..
One time.. the first time.. not so great....I didn't know any better:) The Jetsons :)
the ..next... time ..better
and this time even better..
Happy Feet and all:)
I played it simple this time..
Look here..@ Mom's Dish
The video is perfect..
It did not take 10 minutes for my meringue to take though..and I did add my sugar a bit at a time..
My almond flour never did get perfectly smooth..but they worked:)
These are like Petits Fours cuteness to me:)
I made different sizes..
The snow never bothered me:)
3 egg whites room temp
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup almond flour
2 cups icing sugar
You meringue up your egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form..stiff:)
Add color..natural or not~
You then add the almond flour which you have sieved along with your icing sugar..
And fold the mixture into the meringue until you get the right consistency..the video shows you..
I used my Silpat to make my circles..
I baked mine convection ap 250 F for ap 20 minutes.
Please go see the video and her tutorial..foolproof..Love her accent too!
The kit I bought..the one that inspired me for my second macarons trials..
Is a great little kit..it comes with many tips.. bags..thermometer..
I found it at Costco ..2010..Christmas time..
All those kits are treats..
And in my mind's eye..you can never beat the price..
So reasonable for such quality~
The tip I used was just right.. the bag..is even cuter than Wilton's~
There's even a thermometer..but there was no need for this recipe..
I will make these again and again..w/ berry flavors this summer..
I love turquoise~ So that's what I chose this time color wise~
While making these..
Carla Bruni..Pick Little French Song~
PS ..I like the bags above for food giving...they are by Meri Meri..I found some at our Chapter's store.You can find them at Amazon .com too~
I prefer the smaller ones..but our store only had the large..
They are so cute you will want to play house with them..
Or Bakery owner:)
Now I want to try..coffee..hazelnut..blueberry..rose..etc:-)
