Macarons..Macarons!!



And I did it..I finally made the first batch of macarons ..Successfully [sort off]!!
I have tried it numerous times before without much success…read the macarons disaster episodes here
I followed the tip given by some of the readers and my macarons finally got the feet.
I virtually sat in front of the oven and kept peeping to see if they are getting the feet for the first 10 min
..And once I saw the feet I was running around like a happy child for next 5 min…


I had actually given up macaroon until I started seeing macaroons all over Singapore.
I guess that coz of the Christmas season nearing..
Anyways I got inspired by all colorful macarons around and gave it a try.
Came out well, tasted yummy..need to work on the shape a bit more.
And here is the result!!


Strawberry Macarons
Recipe Courtesy: Deeba from Passionate about Baking
Ingredients
1 egg white
1/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup Icing sugar
1/4 tsp egg white powder
2 tbspn Caster sugar
½ tspn Strawberry essence
A drop of Pink coloring
½ tspn Meringue powder
Directions
Preheat the oven to 140 degree
Powder together the almond meal, Icing sugar and meringue powder in a blender.
Sieve it at least once.
Beat the egg white until foamy, add the caster sugar tbspn at a time and continue to beat until stiff peaks are foamed
Add the almond meal mix to the egg white in 2-3 batches and fold in until just smooth
Using a piping bag, pipe the batter into the parchment paper lined baking tray
Bake for 15 minutes.
Peel of the macaroons and let it cool in the wire rack 
You can choose the filling of your choice and sandwich the macarons.
As I was too lazy after making the macaroons, I chose the simple strawberry jelly.
