Green Tea Macaroons 抹茶马卡龙

【Green Tea Macaroons】
by MaomaoMom

I have tried a few recipes and finally I am happy with this modified recipe. Without resting the batter, the cookie still has a beautiful “collar” (called a “foot”) on the bottom with smooth top. However, I do suggest to use a digital kitchen balance to weigh your ingredients in order to have perfect macarons. In addition, you need to use very finely ground almonds, I suggest you use Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour for your convenience.

3: Once the almond mixture is completely folded into the meringue, fill it to a plastic bag (Picture 6). Preheat oven at 400F/200C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. On the back of the paper draw 4 cm circles with 3-4 cm apart. Cut off one bottom corner of the plastic bag to make a 5 mm hole, pipe batter onto the circles on the parchment paper (Picture 7). Make about 48 macarons.
4: Gently tap the baking sheet on the counter to break any air bubbles. Once the oven reaches 400F/200C, turn it off and place the baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes. Turn on the oven and set 300F/150C bake for 6 minutes, now you should see beautiful “foot” on each macaron (Picture 8).
5: Reduce heat to 200F/100C continue bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove macarons from oven and let them cool.
6: Lemon custard filling: Place egg yolk in a medium size microwave safe bowl, add milk and whisk well with a fork. Add lemon juice and flour and then whisk well. Add butter and then place the bowl in the microwave, heat on high for 45 seconds. Stir the content and then heat for 30 seconds, reheat with 20 second intervals until fully cooked. Let it cool.
7: To assemble the Macarons, take two cookies and sandwich them together with 1 tsp lemon custard filling. Best place them in an airtight container in fridge for 4 hours before serving.

    烤箱温度转换时,温度降得不会那么快,比如从400F到300F,即便关火焖5五分钟之后,烤箱里的温度比300度还高怎么处理呢?另外我试了好几次都是不出裙边是怎么回事呢?
