Method

For the macaroons

  • Beat the almonds in a food processor along with the icing sugar until very finely ground.
  • Pass the mixture through a sieve. If any large pieces are left, beat them in the food processor again and then pass them through the sieve. You don’t want any pieces large or small in the mixture.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the egg whites and salt. Beat on high speed and add the sugar in 5 batches while beating to make the meringue.
  • Use a spatula to transfer half of the meringue into a separate bowl.
  • To the mixer, add the ground almonds and beat for a few seconds to combine.
  • Add the remaining meringue with a spatula and gently fold so that the meringue doesn’t lose its volume.
  • Divide the mixture into 3 separate bowls.
  • In the first bowl, add the yellow food paste, to the second add the red food paste and leave the third white. Mix the other two bowls with a spoon until the color is completely distributed.
  • Transfer each bowl to a separate pastry bag.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with a sheet of silpat and pipe out the macaroons.
  • Tap them on a counter so that the macaroons even out and set them aside for 1 hour so that a film forms on their surface.
  • Preheat oven to 130* C (266* F) Fan.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven and set them aside to cool for 30 minutes.

  • Repeat the same process to make all of the macaroons and serve.
