Directions

110 min.
1. Step

Preheat the oven to 300 F (150 C) and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.Whip the whites and meringue powder until they are foamy, then slowly add the sugar and whip just until the whites barely hold a soft peak when the beaters are lifted. It is very important not to overwhip your egg whites). Stir the ground almonds and icing sugar together and then fold this into the whipped whites in 2 additions (the batter will be quite runny).

2. Step

If you wish to colour the macarons, divide the batter into 3 bowls and stir in a touch of colour into each. Fill 3 piping bags fitted with a plain tip with each of the batters and pipe macarons that are 1 ½ -inches wide and an inch apart on the baking tray. Let the macarons sit for 10-30 minutes, until they develop a “skin” (until the surface of the macarons appear dull – no longer shiny). Bake for about 10 minutes, until they lift off the parchment paper using a spatula without sticking. Let them cool on the trays before removing.

To assemble, pipe or spread a little curd or marmalade on the bottom of one macaron and press the bottom of a second onto it, pressing gently. Continue until all of the macarons are filled.The macarons will keep for up to 3 days in airtight container.

4. Step

Extra fine ground almonds can be found at fine food stores, but if you cannot buy them, then sift conventional ground almonds to achieve a finer texture and then measure, or another option is to grind them with the icing sugar to have them to achieve that fine texture.

Ensaimada de Mallorca

The ensaimada de Mallorca is a classic Mallorcan dessert that I grew particularly fond of during a vacation to the island. The flatbread made from yeast dough is remarkably light, has a perfect sweetness and is downright heavenly when served fresh from the oven. Just the thing to bring home a little piece of summer feeling on snowy winter mornings.
