macarons.

i’ve been really curious and wanting to try to bake some macarons lately. actually i kind of want to make some blue and pink ones for july 4 (real american, i know).

has anyone had any luck with baking their own? they look like they can be whipped together pretty quickly, but i fear it’s one of those things you have to time perfectly for them to turn out.

any tips or recipes?

the pretty ones above are from paulette and range in price, but you can get 18 for $12.

  1. I use Paula Deen’s recipe. It’s for the coconut macaroons, not the almond ones. I don’t like the almond macaroons.

    Here’s Paula’s recipe:

    3 cups shredded coconut
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
    2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
    1 teaspoon cream of tartar

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a medium bowl, combine coconut, almond extract, and salt. Mix in condensed milk to form a thick paste. Fold in egg whites with cream of tarter. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

    super easy and delicious :)
