Description

Strawberry French Macarons is a French Style pastry made with almond flour and egg whites filled with cream cheese and strawberry jam.


Ingredients

Scale

Macaron

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 egg whites
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 drops red food colouring

Cream Cheese and Strawberry Filling

  • 225 g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 8 tsp strawberry jam

Instructions

  1. In medium bowl using a hand mixed beat egg whites until frothy, slowly add the sugar until stiff peaks form. Set it aside.
  2. In a separate bowl sift together powdered sugar and almond flour then fold it with the egg mixture, add the food colouring. Do not over mix it should be even but thick but viscous consistency.
  3. Place the mixture in your piping bag with a large circle hole top then pipe the batter in 4cm diameter circles on to a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Make sure you secure the baking paper edges with a bit of the batter to prevent it from lifting the baking sheet as you pull your piping bag (yes, she had thought of this one).
  4. Gently tap the on the counter to let the batter settle then let it rest for an hour or until the top partly dehydrates and form a thin layer of skin.
  5. Bake in a 140C preheated oven for 15 minutes or until they have risen. Let it cool for 15 minutes before putting the filling.
  6. While macarons are cooling down prepare your filling by mixing all of the cream cheese filling apart from the jam, mix well until smooth then place them in a piping bag.
  7. Pipe the mixture into one of the macaron, only on the edges then place a 1/2 tsp of jam in the middle. Place another macaron on top.
  8. Refrigerate before serving.
