  • How to bake a macaroon. After Dinner Mint Macarons - Step 1
    Step 1

    Beat egg whites until foamy and add in one tablespoon of granulated sugar one by one. Beat until stiff peaks form. Add in your choice of extracts and food coloring.

    Sift almond meal and powdered sugar together in a separate bowl.

    Fold in almond meal and powdered sugar into the stiff egg whites until you get a lava-like batter. Use a rubber spatula for this step. Note: It's important to not undermix and overmix the batter.

    Transfer batter to a piping bag with Wilton 12 round tip and pipe circles onto a Silpat. Note: If your batter is more on the runny side, leave plenty of room between the circles because the batter will spread.

    Allow a hard crust to form on the freshly piped macarons. This will take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour depending on the humidity in your kitchen.

    Preheat oven to 300F. Bake macarons for 5 minutes on each side to ensure even baking.

    Allow macarons to cool before removing from Silpat. Store in an air-tight container up to one week.
