Foolproof Macaron Recipe

Bake your Macarons in a preheated oven – 300F (150C).

Your egg whites should be room temperature and it’s a good idea to give them an egg freshness test prior to using them.

The trick to making your eggs room temperature is to submerge them in warm water for about 5 minutes.

Apparently, according to Beth, as your Macarons bake, the color tends to fade. She says to make them a few shades darker.

Getting your consistency right is vital when it comes to ensuring a perfect result. If you under-mix your ingredients, you could end up with lumpy and cracked macarons.

It’s equally important that you don’t over mix your ingredients either.

What Makes The Perfect Macaron?

The mark of a well-made macaron, according to Beth is 65-75 turns of your spatula when folding.

She says this is about the right amount of time that results in the perfect result.
