French Macarons: Step-by-Step Recipe


Welcome to the world of French macarons! Follow this step-by-step recipe to create these delicate and delicious treats at home.


Slide 1: Gather all your ingredients and equipment before starting. You'll need almond flour, powdered sugar, egg whites, granulated sugar, and food coloring.


Slide 2: Sift together the almond flour and powdered sugar to remove any lumps. This will ensure a smooth and even texture for your macarons.


Slide 3: In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gradually add in the granulated sugar while continuing to beat.


Slide 4: Gently fold the almond flour mixture into the egg whites until fully incorporated. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in flat macarons.


Slide 5: Add a few drops of food coloring to achieve your desired color. Remember, a little goes a long way!


Slide 6: Transfer the batter into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe small circles onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


Slide 7: Tap the baking sheet on a flat surface a few times to release any air bubbles. This will prevent your macarons from cracking while baking.


Slide 8: Let the macarons sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to form a skin. This will help them develop their signature "feet" during baking.


Slide 9: Bake the macarons at 300°F for 15-18 minutes. Let them cool completely before filling with your favorite filling, such as buttercream or ganache.
