Earl Grey Macarons

i’ll be real quick on this post!  Getting really sleepy & i have lecture in a couple of hours. Ain’t a morning person! 😦

Earl grey macarons. i actually have no idea why am i always baking with earl grey! haha. Time to try some other tea 😛

Check out those feets! 😀

ingredients

Macaron Shells:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 110g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp ground earl grey tea leaves

Directions

  • Cut up a couple of tea bags and process them till almost fine
  • Whisk egg whites till foamy than slowly add in granulated sugar
  • Beat them till stiff peak
  • Add your dry ingredients to the egg white and incorporate them (i did them in 2 portions)
  • You want to get a slow moving, lava flowing batter
  • Fit a pastry bag with a round tip and start piping
  • Dry you shells (i’m a firm believer of trying the shells but you can choose not too) & bake them at 150C for 12-15 mins

Chocolate Ganache :

  • 1 cup chocolate
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions

  • Melt chocolate & heavy cream over the stove
  • whisk till they are smooth and shiny
  • Refrigerate them and pipe when macarons are ready

 

Pipe batter onto parchment paper & dry till your hand comes off clean when you gently touch it

Match the macaron shells and pipe the ganache

Sandwich them and you are all set to go! i love making them to give away!

That’s all for now! Getting really sleepy! have fun baking

    • Hello, sticking to the paper can mean a couple of things.

      It could be it’s not fully baked, the macaronage was over mixed

      But anw, you got to cool it for awhile before peeling it off.
