Macarons are all the rage right now, and for good reason. They’re elegant, delicious, endlessly versatile, and freeze beautifully.
In this class we’ll learn the correct way to mix and then pipe our batter so that our finished cookies sport “feet,” which is the frilly layer you see in pictures. Feet are considered the hallmark of a successful macaron, and — so far — 100% of my students have produced them!
In this class we’ll tackle the French method of mixing our batter. This method is classically finicky, and responsible for earning macarons the reputation of being the most challenging recipe in the world. It may take a little practice in your own kitchen before you truly master the method, but the results are worth it!
Students take home more than a dozen filled macarons, a template for piping more, recipes, and a wealth of tips and tricks to ensure successful baking at home.
This recipe is a Gluten Free recipe that uses almond flour, egg whites, powdered sugar, and granulated cane sugar.
