French Macaroons

My first attempt at the French Macaroon.  Pretty fall color, pale orange. Taste was very good.  Over-all, I was pleased.  They were a bit flat. The recipe instructed me to make Hershey's kiss size cookies.  That was too small.  So I tried a bit bigger for the next batch, but those were a bit to large.  My sister did warn me that they are a challenge and she was right.  Hope to do better next time.  
6 oz. blanched almonds
1 1/2 confectioners sugar
3 large egg whites
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
food coloring


  1. I attempted 5 times till they looked like Macaroons!

  2. Wow! 5 times. Did you use the same recipe each time? I was thinking of trying a different one.

  3. I have tried 3 then after reading it said it's in the mixing process where you ensure perfect shape...I got them looking ok... but not like the real ones :( I have a pastry teacher that's supposed show me how to make them

  4. WOW! Good luck. Let me know how they turn out the next time...
