Be sure to make lots of different kinds of fillings or jams!

separate the egg whites

beat egg while until they form stiff peaks

sift sugar and almond flower, there will be quite a bit of "excess" chunkier left over, do not use these in the macaroon mix.

 almond flour and sugar should be a very think light consistency, if it's chunky, sift again

 gently fold in the dry mixer to the eggs whites, make sure not to over mix, or you may end up with cracked shells.
Here's the recipes + directions.
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1 3/4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla if your looking for extra flavor  direction
  • Whisk together almond flour and confectioner's sugar and sift over a large bowl.     
  • Beat egg whites until frothy, 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly add granulated sugar and almond extract or use vanilla extract for extra flavor, beat until medium shiny peaks, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Fold egg whites into almond mixture until combined.  Transfer mixture to a pastry bag or zip lock bag, cut off 1/2 inch off tip. Pipe 1-inch rounds about 1 inch apart on parchment-lined sheets.
  • Let dry 30 minutes to an hour and a half until tops are firm and dry. Preheat oven to 350. Bake one sheet at a time for about 14 minutes, rotating once. Let cool completely.
Now the best part! Decorate, make a fun little decoration station for little kids, or for a party as entertainment!
