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.

    毛毛妈, 您好!
    我不久前发现了您的网站,真是有”闻道”恨晚的感觉. 首先感谢分享,我是无数从您这里受益的妈妈之一,已经按照您的方子做了有生以来的第一次花卷和马卡龙. 真心感谢!
    1. 马卡龙: 蛋白打多少分钟?我觉得自己打的时间太长了,过于坚挺,于是成品鼓得很高,没有了圆润可爱的感觉.
    2. 马卡龙: 想把蛋白里的糖从6勺减到4-5勺,可以吗?
    3. 花卷和发面饼: 对于需要上班的妈妈来说,发面把周末白天的时间占去好多,我想有两个解决方案(a)周五夜里发一次以后放冰箱,第二天拿出来做二次醒发; (b)周五夜里二次醒发结束以后再放进冰箱,第二天拿出来做。(a)和(b)两个办法中哪个比较好?分别有没有注意事项?

    谢谢啦! Best regards!
