Macaroons

macaroons
A simple sweet needs only 3 ingrediants...This came out so gooey in the middle yet crispy outside...I thought of making a fresh cream filling for this...But was so lazy to do it..If you wish you could do that.Any way it tasted awesome with out any filling..So make this and let me know what you think..


Ingrediants:

Egg whites-from 4 large eggs
Powdered Sugar-200 gms / 1 cup
Vanilla-1 tsp

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees..Line a baking tray with foil and grease them lightly with some oil.

In a mixing bowl add the egg whites and start beating it..

Gradually add in the powdered sugar and beat it continuously..Once all the sugar has been added in beat  it for 5-7 min untill the egg whites forms stiff peaks..

If you invert the bowl up your head it wont fall off from the bowl.

Mix in a tsp of vanilla essence and fold gently.

Take a spoonful of this mixture and place it in a foiled lined tray leaving some space between them because they will expand.

Place the tray in the preheated oven...Once the macroon go into the oven reduce the temparature to 160 degree and bake it for 40-45 min. Remove it and let it cool completely.

You could even sandwich two macroons with some whipped cream and enjoy.

Pictorial:

Grab your ingrediants (I thought of making whipped cream filling,but din make..So please Excuse me for the big box of fresh cream,you dont want that)

Start beating eggs

Till it gets little bit flluffy

Add in powdered sugar

Beat well..

til firm peaks form..

Add vanilla...

Dollop on to a baking tray...Bake it till light golden..

ENJOY..

  18. Sister plz help me I am nt getting the macroons,after baking its sawgy,while beating I am getting the stif peaks after few minutes the egg batter becomes foamy

  19. @taj ashfaThere shouldn't be a drop of egg yellow in the whites. Also now water should be there in the bowl which you beat.

  20. I Got the stiff peaks and everything was fine but all the macroons literally broke when I tried to take it out from the oven..the bottom got just stuck in the pan...I am not sure where I went wrong

  21. @preethiI hope you let them cool completely before taking them out of the pan. You should have greased the foil with some oil

  23. The batter is not becoming thick..it is still watery even after a lot of beating.can u please help.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @AnonymousIt is because the bowl which u whipped had some water in it..So the egg whites wont whip up. Always use clean bowls.

    1. Egg yolks can be used for making the cream filling of eclair. Or can be used for making mayonnaise.

  28. Macaroons are my favorite! I just love them. I eat it especially for the tidbits of cashews. The shape shown is different. How do we get that beautiful cone shaped macaroons?

  30. @Anonymousit is normal foil. u can use baking foil as well.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you for the recipe :)I have a doubt,what is the shelf life for the macaroons? If I bake it today for how many days can I store it? And can it be kept out like normal cookies or inside the fridge? Does the taste alter or will it become hard?

    ReplyDelete
  32. @dhaaraneestore it at room temp fr couple of days

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi, this looks yummy :) Im having one problem, how long should we beat it to make it firm because my mix is still liquidy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Anonymous yes u have to whip till thick..if you have water in your bowl it wont whip up.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi normal sugar can be powdered or icing sugar to be used?
