- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
- 3 large egg whites
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Food coloring (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour and powdered sugar. Mix until well incorporated.
- In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add granulated sugar and continue beating until glossy and stiff peaks form.
- Gently fold the almond flour mixture into the egg white mixture until fully combined. If desired, add a few drops of food coloring and fold until evenly colored.
- Transfer the batter into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe small circles onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Tap the baking sheet on the counter to remove air bubbles. Let the macarons rest at room temperature for 20-30 minutes until a skin forms on top.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the macarons are set but not browned.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool completely on the baking sheet.
- Match the macarons into pairs based on size. Pipe your favorite filling (such as ganache or buttercream) onto one half of the macarons and sandwich them with the other half.
- Chill the macarons in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours to allow the flavors to meld.
- Enjoy these delightful Mouthwatering Macarons with a cup of tea or coffee!
