BerryWorld Strawberry and Almond Macarons – Great for Valentine’s Day. Hello friends, happy Thursday. So do you fancy making some sweet macarons?

How To Make BerryWorld Strawberry and Almond Macarons:

These tasty macarons are also a perfect special treat for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.

Makes: 8

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Prep time: 20 minutes

You’ll Need:

4 large egg whites

175g icing sugar

170g ground almonds

30ml water

170g caster sugar

For The Filling:

200g butter (at room temperature)

100g icing sugar

10 BerryWorld strawberries, hulled and sliced

BerryWorld Strawberry and Almond Macarons What To Do:

1. Firstly, preheat the oven to 170°C fan/ 150°C.

2. Place 2 of the egg whites in a large bowl, sift in the icing sugar and ground almonds and mix into a paste.

3. Place the water and caster sugar in a small pan, and bring to the boil. The syrup needs to reach 118°C.

4. While the syrup is boiling, whisk the 2 remaining egg whites until stiff, ideally using an electric whisk. Pour the hot syrup slowly into the egg whites, whisking all the time. Continue whisking until the mixture is thick glossy and cool – the syrup will cook the eggs.

5. With a spatula, gently stir the syrup and egg whites mixture with the sugar, and almond paste until the two mixtures are combined.

6. Place the mixture into a piping bag and pipe out equal rounds onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Don’t worry if all the mix doesn’t fit on the tray, you can cook it in batches.

7. Allow the macaroons to sit for 20-30 minutes so they can form a skin. Cook the macaroons for 15-20 minutes and then allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes.

8. For the filling, beat the butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy. Sandwich the macaroons together with two slices of strawberries and a little buttercream.
