This week I continued on my quest to bake a perfect Macaron... I don't know if I will ever achieve this but it is fun trying. I wanted to see the macarons in the nude so I could judge the cooking time without any colour interference and so I made plain macarons and filled them with a vanilla bean buttercream. The oven was turned down to a lower temperature this time of 145° and cooked for 20 minutes.
The results were wonderful , they had a lovely egg shell crust and the centre had a slightly chewy texture. I could have turned the tray half way through as the back ones started to colour too much....something to remember for next time. Now that I think I have the cooking process much better I may be tempted to try some of the exotic flavour combinations out there.
Cheers for now Susan ♥
