We've taken the guesswork out of making these patisserie beauties, so you can prepare this popular French cookie at home (for less than 25 cents a pop!). Be sure to weigh the ingredients precisely, and follow the step-by-step directions to make meringue, fold in the almond mixture, and pipe the batter into rounds. Delight one and all with the gorgeous, delicious, professional-looking results.
Can I just use 2/3 cup of almond flour instead of grinding almonds?
I am having a nightmare with this recipe. My problem is the mint extract. As soon as I add it the whites start to go down. First batch, the egg separated. So the second batch I used the italian meringue method. As I was adding the syrup in a little stream as I was whisking the whites, they weren't going into the high peaks at all. Had to put the bowl on top of a pan with hot water while almost making my mixer overheat. PLEASE HELP!!!

The macaroons turned out to be really good considering it was my first time making macaroons. I was a little afraid before I made it because a lot of people said macaroons are very hard to make. After making it myself with this recipe, it really wasn't that hard at all. The key is to make sure you read and follow the recipe thoroughly. There was just a hiccup with the recipe, it doesn't say if we're supposed to remove the macaroons from the baking. I took the baking parchment off so it will cool
