    Macarons – Baking

    Been using this recipe for years, I have always used frozen egg whites/cold and silpats make a better macaroon I think. Have used cornmeal as a substitute ( process cornmeal in robot coup) for almond flour with great results and I prefer powder color over wet. This recipe makes 7 sheet pans 9 across 7 down. 300 degrees convection oven 325 degrees conventional oven 1012 grams 10X SIFTED /Confectionery sugar 1012 grams Almond Flour / blanched 375 grams egg whites 375 grams egg whites 1012 grams sugar granulated color Beat 375 grams of egg whites to stiff peak, cook granulated sugar with some water to 240 degrees and add to whites, beat till thick and glossy and cools down add color. Mix 10X & almond flour and add 375 grams whites and mix till blended in mixer. Add 1/3 of meringue to almond flour mixture and mix in mixer until blended, fold in remaining whites. Fold mixture until proper consistency is reached, pipe out and let dry 15 minutes or until macaroon is dry. If there is a peak on top of macaroon you need to mix/fold mixture more. Bake 11 to 12 minutes convection oven 12 to 14 minutes conventional oven
