I'm so excited to tell you guys what I've been working on lately. I was asked a couple of weeks ago by one of my favorite Utah companies, Albion Fit, to match one of their new clothing patterns to my Macarons. So we did that, and I cannot wait to unveil what we ended up doing with the project!!!
We had such a fun time deciding which direction to go with this and I'm very happy with how it turned out!
We decided to do an entire blog post, and recipe tutorial on how to make our Macarons so that we could refresh your memories on how to make the delicious little cookies and show you just have fun these are to shape and decorate!
So let's get to it! Let's get this baking party started!
BAKING TOOLS NEEDED:

- Kitchen Scale
- Medium Saucepan

ITALIAN METHOD MACARONS
BAKE TIME: 11-13 MINUTES BAKE TEMP: 317-320F
(depending on your oven. So on your first batch, try it at 320 for 11 minutes.)
YIELDS ABOUT 48 WHOLE COOKIES
4 LG EGGS ( WE WILL JUST BE USING THE EGG WHITES)
1 TSP CLEAR VANILLA EXTRACT OR 1 TSP OF ALMOND EXTRACT
--START MIXING IN STAND MIXER ON LOW--
ONCE THE EGGS REACH THE FOAMY POINT,
ADD 35 GRAMS OF SUGAR WHILE MIXING.
3 CRACKED EGG WHITES IN A BOWL
100 GRAMS WATER
300 GRAMS SUGAR
--PLACE IN A SAUCEPAN AND PUT ON MED/HIGH HEAT-- STIR FREQUENTLY!--
2 C ALMOND FLOUR
2 C CONFECTIONERS SUGAR
--SIFT TOGETHER - -
COMBINE GROUP #1 AND #2
--ONCE YOUR SAUCE PAN IS TO THE BOILING POINT, TURN OFF STOVE, AND POUR DIRECTLY INTO MIXER WHILE ON LOW STIR. AFTER IT IS ALL IN THE BOWL, TURN UP SPEED TO HIGH TO MAKE A MERINGUE. THIS WILL TAKE ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES. THE GOAL TO THE PERFECT MERINGUE IS TO HAVE A GREAT WHITE SHINE AND A STIFF PEAK.--
ONCE YOU HAVE ACHIEVED YOUR MERINGUE, STOP MIXING AND CLEAN OFF WHISK.
THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL ADD THE EXTRA EGG WHITES TO THE MERINGUE.
FOLD IN SLOWLY, BUT MAKE SURE YOU GET IT ALL COMBINED. NOW POUR ALL DRY INGREDIENTS IN, AND FOLD TOGETHER UNTIL ALL CLUMPS ARE GONE.
AFTER IT IS ALL COMBINED YOU CAN NOW ADD YOUR FOOD COLORING!
HAVE FUN WITH THIS!! MAKE IT WHATEVER COLOR YOU WANT.
ONCE YOU HAVE COLORED YOUR BATTER, PLACE IT IN A PASTRY BAG WITH A WILTON #12 TIP AND PIPE ON A SILPAT OR MACARON MAT. IF YOU DONT HAVE THEM WE HAVE THEM AVAILABLE ON OUR STORE SITE. SO YOU CAN BUY THEM THERE!
I ALSO HAVE EASY PIPING INSTRUCTIONALS ALL OVER MY INSTAGRAM IF YOUD LIKE TO WATCH THEM. HEAD OVER TO INSTAGRAM AND GO TO @THEBLONDEWHOBAKES.
