French Macaroons


Cooking Time

Preparation Time : 60

Cook Time : 30

Total Time : 90


Serves 6

  • large egg whites (or 5 small) 4 nos

  • sugar 70 gms

  • pure icing sugar 230 gms

  • almond meal 120 gms

  • salt (tiny pinch) 2 gms

  • SPRIG All Natural Extracts (Food and Beverage Colours) 1 tsp


  • 01

    Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C.

  • 02

    Place egg whites and sugar in a bowl and mix with electric mixer until stiff enough to turn the bowl upside down without it falling out, continue to whip for 1-2 more minutes.

  • 03

    Divide the mixture into 4 batches. Add food colouring and continue to mix for a further 20 seconds.

  • 04

    Sift the almond meal and icing sugar and salt twice, discarding any almond lumps that are too big to pass through the sieve.

  • 05

    Fold into the egg white mixture. It should take roughly 30-50 folds using a rubber spatula.

  • 06

    The mixture should be smooth and a very viscous, not runny. Over-mix and your macaroons will be flat and have no foot, under mix and they will not be smooth on top.

  • 07

    Pipe onto trays lined with baking paper, rap trays on the bench firmly (this prevents cracking) and then bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
