Hazelnut Macarons + Matcha and Cappuccino Variations


Recipe Source: Skybake
Dating back to the 18th century, the macaron is a traditional French pastry, made of egg whites, almond powder, icing sugar and sugar. This sweet pastry came out of the French courts' baker's oven as round meringue-like domes with a flat base.
Macarons, also anglicized "macaroons", are not to be confused with a similar pastry also called macaroons. Macarons are sandwich-like pastries made with two thin cookies and a cream or ganache between the cookies. Macaroons are dense cookies made either with coconut or with a coarse almond paste.
Macarons come in a wide variety of flavors varying by store and season; ranging from traditional to exotic. Wikipedia


  1. In a mixing bowl whisk together the ground hazelnut and powdered sugar until completely blended. Line 3 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In your stand mixer fitted with the whisk, beat the egg whites and pinch of salt until foamy, gradually add the sugar and continue beating until soft peaks appear.
  3. Fold in the ground hazelnut mixture in two additions until your get a slow moving batter. Fill a pastry bag with the batter and pipe small amounts of batter 3 cm in diameter, 2 cm apart. Leave to rest for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 170C/340F and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and cool completelyt on rack. Spoon the filling on one shell and sandwich with another one.

Macaroons are one of my all time favourite treats. You did a wonderful job on these. I have tried to make them before, but they haven't come out exactly right. I'm still trying though. Yours look really great.

Your macarons look great. This is one thing we totally haven't tried yet because it seems a little hard. It's probably worth the effort though.
