THE RECIPE (USING REGULAR FLOUR – NUT FREE)
INGREDIENTS for AMACARON SHELLS
- 2 large egg whites
- 4 tablespoons castor sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon 1⁄2 cup all purpose flour (65 g)
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar (icing sugar) (55 g)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract

METHOD FOR MAKING AMACARON SHELLS
- In a bowl, beat egg whites until frothy

- In a separate bowl, whisk the flour and powdered sugar (icing sugar) together. Then, sift the flour and powdered sugar (icing sugar) mixture into the egg white mixture
- Add the vanilla extract, and gel food colouring if you want the macarons to be coloured
- Gently fold all the ingredients together
- Transfer the batter into a piping bag with a rounded tip
- Pipe the macarons onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. Gently tap the baking sheet on a flat surface a few times to release air bubbles
- Let the macarons sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes
- Preheat the oven to 140 Celsius
- Bake the macarons for 17-20 minutes
- Allow the macarons to cool for 10 minutes, then transfer the macarons onto a cooling rack
- Add a dollop of butter icing or any icing of your choice to one of the macaron shells, then top it with another macaron shell to create a sandwich.
BUTTER ICING METHOD
Mix powdered sugar (icing sugar) and butter together and mix the Amarula in once mixed throughly.
