Macarons #2


It has been a long long time since I last tried to make macarons … thought about it many time and finally pulled myself together to give it another try.

Once again I turned to Not So Humble Pie for help on the cookies and the filling – lemon mascarpone cheese.

The batter looked a bit thin to me, I suspect my egg white was under beaten. I left them to sit for an hour before baking.

These were from two batches of baking.  The top batch was left to cook a bit longer than 25mins and turned brown.  The top of the cookies looked much much better than my first try.

The bottoms looked a bit under cooked even though they were all in the oven for over 20mins

Made lemon with the leftover egg yolk.

They looked and tasted good when freshly made but some how after keeping in the fridge for a day, it turned soft.  Not sure if it is because of the filling…

  1. Macarons are known to go soft after a day or so- something about the insides of the cookie melding with the filling, I think? Some people even purposefully let them go soft!
    The first time I made macarons didn’t go too well but I’m all energized for another round. ‘pulling oneself together’ is an apt description for the aftermath of a project! I’m glad you could make these, they are impressive!
    Thank you for sharing!
