Homemade Macarons... Again!

4 years ago

Pictures are mine! About a month ago, my friend and I decided to /viz/macarons--little did we know how difficult it would be! We had overbeaten the eggs, so instead of turning out fluffy, our shells were flat as pancakes. Since then, I`ve tried four more times to make them, each time turning out better and better shells. Today, I made vanilla shells with chocolate and Nutella ganache filling. I used the same recipe as the one linked in my first attempt, but changed the ingredients list a little bit: To make the shells-- 2/3 cup of almond flour 1 and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar 3 large egg whites 5 tablespoons of granular sugar 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract To make the filling-- 1/2 cup of whipping cream 2 ounces of bittersweet chocolate 3 tablespoons of Nutella spread I`ve become as addicted to baking them as I am eating them, I think. Considering that macarons can cost more than $2 each, I think learning how to bake them is well worth it. Macarons are always great to give away for any occasion--perks of dainty French food--and I think coloring and customizing them yourself is the best part. Pictures 1 through 4 are today`s results. 5 and 6 are from a previous attempt. Though the latter looked better, they were overcooked and chewy on the insides. Today`s turned out much fluffier, thank god. french
