Discover the taste of French Macarons with Delices Gourmandises

30 Juillet 2014, 10:00am

No one could resist to these little French pastries known as Macarons. Perfect as presents and easy to keep, you can serve them at any time of day. Delices Gourmandises macarons are lightly crisp, chewy and still manage to melt like butter in your mouth but “how to make perfect French Macarons?”  Here is one of our easiest recipes.

Ingredients

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 egg whites
¾ cup almond flour
¼ cup white sugar
Pinch of cream tartar
 


Directions
1. In a bowl of a stand mixer, beat egg whites until foamy. Add sugar and a pinch of cream tartar. Continue beating until egg whites are glossy, fluffy and hold soft peaks.
2. Pulse confectioners' sugar and almond flour in a food processor until combined. Sift in a separate bowl and add the mixture into the egg whites.
3. Once the batter thick and fall slowly when dripped from the spatula. Pipe 1-inch circles onto baking sheets lined with silicon mats or parchment paper. Let stand at room temperature until dry, and a soft skin forms on the tops of the macarons, 15 to 30 minutes.
4. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F
5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until set but not browned. Remove baking sheet to a wire rack and let the macarons cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Take care when removing the macarons, their tops are easily crushed.  You can use chocolate ganache or Jam as a filling.

 

Tips : You will know the macarons are done when you can touch them and the top of the macaron does not slide around under your finger.

Macarons are definitely a must in my view. They are so smooth and we can't stop once we starts to eat one. I really like the slight mix of flavour coming up with the first bite

Delices & Gourmandises macarons look amazing. I will definitelt try it. By the way, how can we remove macarons from baking sheet so that they won't glue ? My sister is a huge fan of French macarons and she meet the same problem each time she came to prepare some.

First attempt at macarons, it came out wonderfully ! Never been so happy :-) perfect round mounds with no cracks and cute little "feet" though I spent more than 30 minutes in the preparation. Thanks for this lovely and easy recipe.

I love Delices Gourmandises macarons, my favorite flavor is dark chocolate and the children love the strawberry one. I just made my first batch of macarons from your recipe, it was a great success. French macarons look like a real challenge but thanks to your directions, it came out perfectly.
