What to do on a lazy Sunday with a bowl full of icing and an itch to bake? Whip up some french macarons, of course! I put together some almond flavored cookies with a touch of lemon, stuffed them with almond flavored icing and voi la, pretty!
If you're looking for the recipe, check out my initial post here. Don't be intimidated; they're easy! Here's a step by step.
Step 1: Whip up some old (I mean it!) egg whites and some superfine sugar.
Step 2: Go to town sifting up almond flour and confectioner's sugar
Step 3: Take eggs, sift flour on top one more time, add some food color and flavoring, and stir 'til shiny.
Step 4: Pipe circles onto some parchment paper (or silpat mats if you're fancy like that.)
Step 5: Bake for about 10 minutes, let cool for 10 more, pipe on your filling of choice, smush together, and enjoy some pretty french cookies!
