One of the places on MY bucket list is ALASKA. And I'm super happy to announce that we are going to make that bucket list trip this summer! (I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.) Consider this your warning that the blog WILL be bombarded with Alaska pictures the minute that we return. :)
I've had a fascination with macaroons for a long time. They're just the most perfect, delicate and delicious little treat. It's mostly a lack of confidence that's kept me from tackling this delicate treat. The list of ingredients isn't long and the instructions are fairly straightforward but for whatever reason - I was completely intimidated by the macaroon.
Well, today is the day that I stepped up, made my first macaroon and crossed this tasty little treat off my baking bucket list. No more excuses. Spoiler alert - they turned out great!!
- 2/3 cup almond flour
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
- 4 oz. egg whites, about 3 large eggs, room temperature
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 tsp. vanilla
Beat egg whites in mixer with whisk attachment until soft peaks form.
Gradually add sugar and vanilla while mixer is running. Beat on high until stiff peaks form.
