I had never had a Macaron before but seen them at SamClub for $20 a box. Seeing that price and how cute they are made me want to try making some for my self. Because homemade is always better right? Lol So thanks to this Simple Bakers Silicon baking mat I was able to do so. I then went on a hunt for almond flour( who would have know its nothing more than mashed up almonds ) It sat me back around $10 for a bag. Once I got home with my Almond flour I looked up on youtube for a recipe I found a few that was great but went with this one
3/4 cup Almond Flour
2 1/2 teaspoons Sugar
1 cup Powder sugar
I then mixed the Almond flour and powder sugar in a mixing bowl then I take my egg whites and blended them for 4 to 5 mins with my hand mixer until the eggs are nice and fluffy. Once the eggs are fluffy I then added gel food coloring and the sugar slowly. Once it was well mixed I then blended the Almond flour and the sugar mixture I only stirred around until it looked smooth. I then grabbed a piping bag and added it all to the bag and placed it on the mat. The Silicone baking mat is a life saver! Its just allows me to added just the right amount to make each cookie it guides you along the way allowing you to even make cute little ears for a bear. This Simpler Bakers mat not only is great for a guide its also great because nothing sticks to it! I baked these and didn't use oil or anything when I wanted to pull the cookies up I just lifted them up and I then was ready to add my filling. For my filling I used this recipe.
I made my own cream filling heres what I used
BUTTER CREAM FILLING:
1/4 cup softened butte
3/4 cup powdered sugar 1/2 cup
1/2 cup of jam My favorite is Strawberry
2/3 cup of softened cream cheese
I got this product at no charge in exchange for a honest review!
