Made this last weekend for a friend!
For Macaron Shells:
3 egg whites
50g granulated sugar
200g icing sugar
110g ground almonds
2 tablespoons (or more if you’re like me :P) green tea powder
Ground almonds, icing sugar and green tea powder! Looks like a green tea mountain. Haha, i sifted them together.
Whipped the egg whites with the sugar until you get soft peaks.
Fold your dry ingredients into your egg whites. I mixed it in half at a time so its easier! When you get a a shiny, slow moving batter, stop mixing.
Pipe it onto your parchment paper.
Shiny 😀 Bake at 150C for 12 to 14 mins.
I filled my macarons with chunky red bean paste.
Packed and ready to go! 😉
If you guys realised, there’s a slight difference in my piping of macaron shells. Maybe not that obvious in the photos though. But its because i lost my piping tip 😦 I don’t know how! Maybe its tired of me making so many macarons it decided to run away. Hahaha. Too bad for it, i got myself a new piping tip two days ago. Plus a silpat mat to make myself feel better 😀 Now i can’t wait to bake my next batch of macarons! Heheh.
And school’s in! Only the second week of school but i’m totally drained out. It’s gonna be a crazy semester!
