Step 5: Mix Everything Together

Sift your dry ingredients into the egg mixture, and fold until you form a molten-like batter that globs down when your lift your spatula out of the bowl. The batter should slowly flow to form into the shape of the bowl (see video for visual representation).

Step 6: Pipe the Macarons

Fill your batter into a piping bag fitted with a medium-large tip, and pipe into slightly larger than quarter sized mounds onto parchment paper or silicon baking mats. Tap your pans on a counter a few times to remove air bubbles and flatten cookies, and allow to rest on the counter until dry. During the humid season, you may want to blow a fan over the top of the macarons to increase the speed of drying. The surface of the macaron should be dry and not break to the touch.

Step 7: Bake

Bake your macarons at 300-305 degrees Fahrenheit for 18-20 minutes or until they lift almost cleanly off of the pan.

Step 8: Prepare the Buttercream

In the bowl of a mixer, beat your butter (room temperature) until nice and fluffy. Sift and mix in your powdered sugar on low speed in two separate rounds. Then, add in your vanilla extract and if necessary, your heavy cream. Finally, in a small cup (like a shot glass), mix together your gingerbread spice and instant coffee. Then add in just enough heavy cream to dissolve. Spoon your mixture into the buttercream and mix until smooth.

Step 9: Assemble the Macarons

Once your macaron cookies have cooled, fill your buttercream into a piping bag and pipe your filling onto the cookies in small mounds. Sandwich two cookies together, and you have a completed cookies.
