There are many chefs and bakers who seem to always serve up the same ol’ desserts, we all have probably found ourselves in a situation where we tend to make the same dessert over and over. The problem is our party guests may become bored with us if you always serve up the same old culinary goodies, but here is one delectable pink french macaron recipe that is sure to impress our guests. Go ahead, give it a try and see happiness appear on the faces of all your party guests.
Delectable Pink French Macaron Recipe.
3 Cups of Ground Almonds
2 Cups of Icing Sugar (some chefs say you can also use Confectioners Sugar)
6 Egg Whites Red Food Coloring, (use the liquid kind) – add a little at a time until you get the color you desire.
1 Cup of Sugar
Make sure your rack is in the middle of your oven, then heat oven to 350 degrees F. Now, line baking sheets with parchment paper. Put the almonds and icing sugar into a food processor and turn them into a fine powder. This will take about 2-3 minutes, then set this mixture aside.
Now, using a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and food coloring until the whites form peaks, then slowly add the sugar, continue to gently beat the egg mixture until stiff peaks form. At this point, use a spatula to gently add the fine powder (almond and sugar) mixture with the egg whites. Mix until the meringue mixture becomes slightly soft.
Using a piping bag with a 1/3″ nozzle, put the mixture you created into the bag and make small blobs onto your parchment paper. The blobs should fall slightly, if it doesn’t, then it isn’t quite soft enough, so take it out of the bag and try to mix it again. Once you have covered your baking sheet with blobs of mixture, tap the baking sheet gently on a hard surface a couple of times. It is best to bake one sheet at a time, bake your macarons for about 7-9 minutes, the macarons are done when they appear firm and have slightly risen. Note: some chefs recommend you put a wooden spoon in your oven door while baking, some chefs also recommend just opening your oven door half way through the baking process. Basically, you just need to release any steam that occurs in the oven during baking.
Use jelly or your favorite frosting in between two macarons if you are looking to make a classic macaron treat.
Let Macarons cool on the baking sheet, serve on attractive and charming Round Bamboo Veneer Plates. Your guests are sure to be very impressed by this dessert treat and by the stylish plates that you serve it on.
