Introduction: French Macarons

Hey momoluvers! It's momo. Today I am super duper excited for this instructable because I have begun to be obsessed with the trend that is "french macarons". If you don't know, macarons are sort of wafer cookies. They have a crispy lining in the top then a cake-y substance on the inside. Then the filling, and another cookie. These are very picky cookies so make sure you follow every single detailed instruction or they won't turn out right

Step 1: Supplies

1- 3 egg whites (room temperature)
2- 1/4 cup of white sugar
3- 2 cups powdered sugar
4- 1 cup of almond flour


Raspberry filling:

1- a stick of butter (1/2 cup)
2- 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
3- 2-3 tablespoons of raspberry juice

Step 2: Dry Ingredients

Sift the powdered sugar, 1/3 at a time. Now sift the almond flour the same way, in the same bowl. Now whisk it until it's thoroughly combined

Step 3: Fluff Them Whites

Now take a mixer and put in Your room temperature egg whites and mix it on high for about a minute. Now for the next minute or so, gradually add the white sugar. (Mix on high) now add food coloring dye (optional) mix again until it's combined

Step 4: Fold It In

Add in about 1/3 of the dry ingredients and fold it about 15/20 times. Repeat and when it's completely combined, you should have folded it about 60 times

Step 5: Pipe It

Scoop your batter into a piping bag (or in my case, a ziplock sand which bag). Cover your cooking sheet with parchment paper. Now pipe the cookies about an inch- and inch and a half. When you're done, tap on the table really hard so the air bubbles will surface and you'll get smoother cookies.

When ALL of that is done, let the cookies sit out for about 30 minutes because they develop a hard shell. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

After the thirty minutes are up, put the cookies in for about 20 minutes

Step 6: Raspberry Filling

Whip the butter for about 2 minutes. Then slowly add the powdered sugar. Mash up your raspberries to get the juice. Now add the raspberry juice in the buttercream and mix it with your beater. Put it in a piping bag and when your cookies are done baking, just pipe the filling in between them.

Step 7: Filling

Once your cookies are done, take them out and pipe the icing on them. Done!

Step 8: Finish!
