The Ultimate Guide To Making French Macarons

Macarons can be tricky - these are the steps to perfect French macarons. 

Make meringue and whip until stiff peaks form.

Add the sifted almond meal and powdered sugar and fold to combine. 

Mix until you can draw an unbroken figure 8 with the batter.

Pipe out the macarons and then bang on the counter to remove any bubbles.

Add sprinkles if using, then leave to dry until a skin forms. 

Bake until the shells can be cleanly lifted off.

Pair up the shells and sandwich with buttercream.

There you have it - perfect French macarons!
