  • Sift the ground almonds and icing sugar until well combined. Mix and grind again.
  • Add the egg whites first. It is convenient to separate the whites from the yolks the day before.
  • Make a syrup at 121 °C and pour the Italian merengue over the stiff egg whites.
  • Once warm, add the blended ground almonds, icing sugar and egg whites.
  • Spoon the macaroon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a number 6 nozzle. Pipe circles onto the baking tray lined with grease proof paper.
  • Set aside for 45 minutes at room temperature. The outside of the macarons must be crispy.
  • Bake at 160 °C for approximately 8 minutes.
  • The middle should be soft, as if it is not completely cooked.


  • You can fold in the food colouring and blended ground almonds, icing sugar and egg whites.
  • They can be used to decorate cakes or can be consumed individually by joining two units with a filling, usually buttercream.
