Even though they don’t look great. They are actually quite addicitive. Have one and you can’t stop. But I had to, as I’m still nursing the sinus flu..
It’s my 2nd time trying to make macaroons. The first time was a complete flop. I didn’t even whip the egg whites to a foam! They were wet and useless.
This time, i did whip the egg whites to a
pulp, I mean foam, measuring everything out nicely. I didn’t have a kitchen scale so I borrowed our office’s shipping scale. Well, a scale is a scale is a scale.
The messy part was when I tried to pipe the batter. It didn’t come out from the tip, but the top of the bag! Dang!
Only 2 halfs out of 20 came out the way it should be. The rest cracked.
I found that a couple of things could cause macaroons to crack – oven being too hot, tapping the tray to release the air would prevent them from cracking.
I’ll not give up! I’ll try again and master it someday. To becoming MasterChef!!!
