My daughter has been in love with macarons for several years so it was only a matter of time before we attempted to make our own Macaron Recipe. Thankfully it was a success and after trying these delicious treats, I knew I had to share the recipe. Plus this Macaron Recipe is so easy to whip up.
We started out by deciding what flavor macaron we wanted and then scoured the internet for easy macaron recipes and no-fail macarons, unfortunately, most of those recipes failed for us. Either we didn’t have all of the fancy equipment we needed to recreate the recipe or the consistency was just not quite right.
Then we found the perfect combination that worked for us and we stumbled upon our very own Macaron Recipe that really is easy to recreate.
I am so happy that we did because after hearing about these things constantly from my daughter, I finally located a place that sold them and boy were they overpriced. I couldn’t believe the price tag on a pack of nine macaroons, coming in at around ten dollars a pack.
I just can’t imagine regularly paying someone that kind of money to make pastries, I would much rather whip up my own. As soon as this French treat cost me money, that is the exact moment when I decided to attempt to create my own Macaron Recipe.
I started making this Macaron Recipe by preheating my oven to 300 degrees then sifting both the powdered sugar and granulated sugar before adding it into a mixing bowl.
If you have a stand mixer affix the whisk attachment and then begin whisking the sugars with almond flour. If you are doing this recipe old school, use a whisk, making sure the mixture becomes shiny and smooth.
In another bowl, whip the salt and egg whites together.
The next step is to use a pastry bag or a sandwich bag with the end snipped to create your own pastry bag. Using the tip to pour circles onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Let the macarons bake for about 12-15 minutes and while you are waiting, whip up this oreo macaron filling.
To make the filling you will need to mix 1 stick of softened butter and 3/4 cup of powdered sugar, 1 and a half cups of Oreos and a dash of vanilla extract. Drizzle a little milk into the filling if it needs to be thinner, a little at a time to ensure it doesn’t get too runny.
Pipe the filling in between two cooled macarons and press the tops on.
I hope you enjoyed making this Macaron Recipe and that they turned out great for you but if they didn’t, I wouldn’t get discouraged.
Macarons can be hard to make and although they always taste delicious it may take a couple of attempts before you can master this Macaron Recipe texture or get the perfect Pinterest Macaron Recipe look, I am still working on that part too.
