French macarons from the first bit you become addicted. I still remember my introduction to
these little pieces of heaven.
It was my first day in France I was walking down the Champs-Elysées and found myself in front of Ladurée.
I walked into the shop, my eyes danced over to macarons and I bought a few.
I visited Pierre Herme Boutique and Laudées twice a day during my stay.
I decided I needed to learn how to create my own macarons.
I spent 3 weeks attempting to bake macarons, my macarons either looked liked they had pimples or were hollow.
Frustration would be an understatement, however I am tenacious so I kept cracking and separating eggs.
Finally I had designed a macaron recipe and technique that not only looked correct, but tasted amazing.
In reality I was so intimated (I heard they were difficult to make), I psyched myself out.
While preparing 175 Strawberry Swirl macarons for a wedding I thought
it would be awesome to share my foolproof macarons with you.
Equipment for Macaron Project:
• Standing mixer
• Sugar pot or heavy bottom pot
• Measuring jug
• Food processor
• Large bowl
• Large spatula
So relax before you start and don’t worry..Soon you will be baking macarons of your own!
Join me as I step by step create delicious Strawberry Swirl French Macarons.
Remember to prepare your liquid egg whites at least 24 hours prior to creating your macarons.
Personally I prefer to allow the egg whites sit in the refrigerator for 48 hours
in a glass jug.
