Prep Work Details

PREP FOR MACARON CLASS Thank you taking the macaron class with me. Most French pastry recipes are formulas, not necessarily “recipes” per se. Converting the recipe to Imperial measurements (US metrics) can be done if you do not have a scale or the means to weight out the ingredients. This includes the fresh egg whites. Yes, you will use approximately 3 eggs, but depending on the size you may need -/+ . Below are the converted US metrics: Confectioner’s Sugar 1 cup Almond Flour 1 cup and 5 TB Fresh Egg White’s 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar ½ cup Wipe your mixing bowl and beaters down with white vinegar, rinse with cold water and then wipe out with a paper towel. Sift almond flour and confectionery sugar. Together or separate is fine. But they must end up combined together in a bowl. Separate fresh egg whites from yolks. Please make sure there are no "goldfish" (aka yolks) in the whites. Pull them out of the refrigerator 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to class. Have your piping bags and pans ready. If you are using parchment paper, have it lined up within the sides of the pan. Having a fan or even a ceiling fan that you can turn on to low once the cookies have been piped will help dry them out prior to baking. I also want you to know that the class may run over 90 minutes as I am thorough to a fault. I want you to be successful in making these lovely macarons. If any of you have questions or concerns about the class, I will be on 10 minutes prior to the start. See you soon!
