I have been in a frenzy of macaron making of late! I have been making macarons for many years now but my method has recently changed. I recently purchased a Thermomix and preparing the macarons in it is a whizz 🙂
Instead of sifting the icing sugar and almond meal together, you just pop them in the Thermie and hit turbo a few times. This not only mixes the two ingredients, it sifts them as well. And no more pushing through a fine sieve – yay!!! The Thermomix also whips the egg whites to perfection. The base recipe I have been using can be found at Super Kitchen Machine blog.
Recently I have made the following varieties: Bacon & Maple, Salted Caramel, Key Lime, and today’s Raspberry White Chocolate.
These little beauties are the base recipe with a touch of pink colour added. A ring of white chocolate ganache (also made in the Thermomix), and a tiny bit of raspberry jam in the centre. They are for my Mum 🙂
