Mama’s Guide Procedure:
for the macarons

1. In a mixing bowl, sift the almond flour and the icing sugar. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.

2. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, granulated sugar and drops of gel food colouring (using an electric mixer) until it forms a peak.

3. Combine the two (2) mixtures, the mixture #1 and the mixture #2. Just use an eggbeater or spatula in mixing. Mix Gently until smooth. Do not under-mix. Do not over-mix.

4. Place the mixture in an icing bag or pastry bag.

5. Pipe out 1 inch rounds on the baking tray with a baking paper. (Bang the tray 3 times with the macarons on it, to release the air inside the macarons.)

6. Let them sit out for 20-30 mins, or up to an hour.

7. Preheat the oven to 100 degrees celsius.

8. Bake the macarons for 18-20 minutes. (Just keep an eye, all ovens bake differently.)

9. Remove the tray from the oven. Let it cool down before removing the macarons from the tray.
for the filling
