Almond Macarons

My wife loves these! If you've been afraid to try making macarons at home, fear no more! This recipe is super user-friendly and turns out great every time.

Prep
Cook
Serves 8people
Ingredients
1
cup blanced almonds
1
cup granulated sugar
2
egg whites, beaten lightly
1/2
tsp vanilla extract
2
tbsp confectioners' sugar
Directions
1.
Preheat an oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.
Combine the almonds, sugar, egg whites, and vanilla extract in a food processor and pulse the mixture until it has taken on the texture of a very coarse paste. Turn the food processor on high speed and blend the paste for 2 minutes, until it is very smooth and thick.
3.
Spoon the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a wide tip and pipe the batter into uniform, 1-inch mounds on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow the batter to rest, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
4.
Bake the macaroons for 12 minutes. Remove the hot macaroons to a wire rack and cool to room temperature and dust with the confectioners’ sugar before serving.
