Mmmmm Macarons

by - Wednesday, March 13, 2013

After mentioning during one recording session to Emma that I have never made or eaten Parisien Macarons she insisted that she teach me to make them one of our next Petite Music Box sessions. Obviously I was more than happy to partake in this exercise!! So with Harper snuggled up in Emmas bed having a nap we got busy in the kitchen and I was surprised to find that it wasn't too difficult!
So if you get a chance while your baby is napping... ignore the housework and give these treats a go! 
You won't be disappointed!

 Recipe From Emma

white your white eggs, so you can have on two or three, the matter is to weight them. so for example if it weight 70 gram then you need
70 gram of icing sugar
70g of almond powder
70 g of white eggs
70g of sugar
in a sauce pan put the sugar and a bit of water and hit it until it becomes a syrup, so not to hot!!!!
in the same time whisk the egg until white (put a bit of salt before to whisk)
when the syrup is ready and the eggs are white then pour gradually the syrup into the white egg and don't stop whisking it until it get colder
in the oven tray put the almond ground and roast it a little bit to get it dry.
then mix the ground almond with the icing sugar and sift the mixture into a bowl.
when the white eggs are ready fold gradually the white eggs into the ground almond.
Using a pastry bag put it onto an oven tray and into the oven at 150 degree for 10/15 mins
enjoy with or without filling!!!!
