Macaron

S’more Macarons Please

I love a good challenge and I love breaking the rules.  When I first considered how can i incorporate graham cracker flavor in a macaron I wondered if I could whip egg whites with brown sugar. Brown sugar and honey? These 2 ingredients give the cookie its earthy flavor.
Challenge accepted! Although my first attempt had too much cinnamon all in all the cookie had the look of a macaron soaked in graham cracker essence.
Ingredients for macaron
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp honey
How to macaron
  1. Sift confectioners sugar, almond flour, and cinnamon together
  2. In stand mixer with a whisk attachment whisk egg whites until foamy
  3. Add brown sugar a little at a time while eggs are whisking
  4. Add honey to egg whites and whisk until stiff
  5. Sift almond flour mix over egg whites in 3 batches and fold each time
  6. Mix gently until the mixture flows like lava (video coming soon)
Place the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a #12 tip and pipe 1.5 inch circles on parchment paper.

Be sure to let macarons rest until they are dry…. You will know they are dry when you touch the centers they are no longer tacky and and a skin has formed.Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes rotating half way through.

When it comes to filing my s’more macarons I filled the tops with chocolate ganache and the bottoms with toasted basic swiss meringue. I piped the meringue using a star tip so when it’s toasted it has plenty of texture.

  1. The science of making a macaron, very interesting. Why is it nut flour as opposed to regular flour? What would the end result be if that mixture and prep was made with wheat flour?

    • I tried it once with wheat flour and the cookie never produced the feet. There is a product on the market that has wheat flour and almond flour and the macarons come out fine. I might try it again. Macarons are very finicky and any mistep will result in a wafer cookie.
