Now macaroons can be a little tricky to make. However, follow this recipe, and you will have amazing macaroons in no time.

So what do you need to make Macaroons?

  • 4 oz. confectioners sugar
  • 2 oz. almond flour (I recommend Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 oz granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 oz. egg whites roughly two eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla optional or you can use your favorite extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp crushed oreo cookie
  • Buttercream
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 2 tsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tbsp crushed oreo cookie
  • 12 mini Oreo cookies (optional)

So now that you have your ingredients ready how do you make these things?

Macaroon Instructions

First, weigh out all of your ingredients. Weighing is an essential part of the instructions because macaroons can be finicky if exact measurements aren't used. Once you have everything weighed and ready sift together your almond flour and powdered sugar in a large bowl and set aside.

Next, add your egg whites to the bowl of your mixer and start mixing on medium speed until they get nice and frothy. When this step is complete add in the salt. Now you want to gradually add in your sugar to the egg whites and mix on medium speed until you get a soft peak consistency.

Once the egg whites are the right consistency, add about 1/3 of the dry mixture to the egg whites and fold in until there are no dry spots left. Add in the remaining dry mixture to the meringue and fold in until there are no dry spots. Begin to check for the “ribbon” stage, where the batter falls off in ribbons, and you can make a figure 8 without it breaking off. When you reach this consistency stop folding the batter.

Next prepare your piping bag.

You will want to use a medium round tip for these. As a tip, you can place your piping bag in a large cup to make it easier to add your batter. Pour the mixture into the piping bag slowly.

To get the exact macaroon shape, place the macaroon template under a silicon mat on a baking sheet. Now, while you are piping, you will want to hold your piping bag completely vertical and lift straight up. Aim to make circles that are about 1 1/2 to 2 inches.

After you have piped all the batter, you need to remove the air bubbles from the mixture. You will do this by banging the baking sheet on the counter 10-20 times which should remove all the bubbles. If you have a few stubborn ones left you can use a toothpick or something sharp to pop them. At this point, you can top the batter with crushed Oreo cookies if you would like.

Next, you need the macaroons to dry. This drying is accomplished by leaving them on the counter for thirty to sixty minutes, or until you can touch them and feel a “shell” form over them. Give them a gentle touch, and make sure no batter comes off on your finger.

To bake the macaroons, preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Your macaroons need to bake for ten to fifteen minutes or until lightly browned. When the baking is complete, you should be able to touch the top of the macaroon it should not wiggle around on the “feet.” Allow them to cool COMPLETELY before taking them off the baking sheet.

Now we move on to the buttercream.

Start by creaming the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand mixer. Once the butter is finished, add in the powdered sugar slowly with the mixer on a low speed and mix until thoroughly combined. Next, you need to add in your vanilla and mix until light and fluffy. This process should take about two to three minutes. Once this step is complete add in the crushed cookies.

Oreo Macaroons

To frost the macaroons, place the frosting in a piping bag with a star tip. You will want to put a generous amount of buttercream on half of the macaroon shells in a circle and add a mini Oreo to the middle. Place the remaining macaroon shells on top of the frosted halves. Place the finished product in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours to allow them to “mature.”
