Super-Simple Macaron Recipe


Dreaming of delicious raspberry macarons? If you can never order enough to keep your family satisfied, here’s a quick and easy recipe for creating some of your own at home!

You will need:

1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup raspberry jam
3 large egg whites
3 teaspoons water
2 or 3 drops of food coloring (optional)

Directions:

1: Start by whipping the sugar, flour and a single egg white in a large mixing bowl. The blend will be thick and mostly dehydrated. That’s expected.

2: On the stove, heat your water and another dash of sugar until the mixture comes to a boil. You want it very, very hot, enough that the sugar crystals melt into a kind of syrup, but be careful not to let it evaporate away.

3: In another bowl, whisk the two remaining egg whites until they’re soft and fluffy. Add your heated syrup mix and continue to stir. Toss in the food coloring when the mixture is smooth.

4: Mix everything together, the dry and the liquid, and form “sandwiches” out of the resulting mold. For example, one macaron will require two mounds, a top and a bottom.

5: Place your mounds on a baking sheet and put them in the oven at 400°F for at least five minutes. Depending on the power of your machine and the size of the mounds, it may take up to 10 minutes. You want them to become glossy and firm.

6: Remove the mounds from the oven and let them cool.

7: Spread raspberry jam across half of the mounds. Put the rest on top to complete the “sandwich.”

8: Serve and enjoy!
