Tales from my kitchen
Dear Amrita please can u tell me something about the drying process,it just doesnt dry ,even though the weather is dry in our city at the moment ,its impossible to make 10 months of the year ,hav tried an airconditioned room too,please let me hav some tips on drying process of macroons before baking ,will appreciate if u reply ASAP,thanks. I want to know if any macaron filling works, because i made a custard filling and after a day of being on the macaron the bottom macaron shell went soggy beacause the custard i think was to wet.
My favorite fillings are jams, jelly, a solid buttercream that holds at room temperature the French style with yolks does well or any chocolate ganache… Nutella works great too! Hi Amrita I have just made some reall awful macarons my first — not yours — they are completely hollow like shells. I appreciate anything I can know beforehand so thanks again! It is veeerrrryyy important XD. I really appreciate ur tips. I hope my macaroon looks okay!
Hope this helps! Thankyou for your tips will definitely try them out. Although it is raining today so I had better wait for some sun. I am getting ready to try making them for the first time hopefully all is well. There is also a version of the same name which substitutes peanut flour for almond and is flavored in wagashi style, widely available in Japan. Thanks for the tips. How your macaron feel like after baking? Mine was crunchy like you eat cookies.
Some people said we need to let it rest for 24hours after we put filling, so that the inside will be chewy. Is your like that? Sorry for my english. Hope you understand what im asking. Thanks very much for the tips. I tried this several times but could not get it. I will follow your tips and try it again. Will let you know. If you pipe them on Silpat mats and rotate the trays halfway through baking time, that should help with the lopsided-ness. The hollowness is also due to the mixing stage and not rapping the sheets after piping.
You have to mix carefully and a bit forcefully to get all the air out. This will help pop any air bubbles as well. I stopped doing this so much because my sheets would get twisted and messed up, but rather, I try to keep the batter a bit loose by adding in a couple drops of extract or even a tsp of unwhipped egg white. Great tips. Every time I try to bake the macarons, they end up lop-sided or they spew all the filling out and the shell remains hollow.
Would you happen to know what may be going on? When I made them the first time, they came out perfectly, now when I do them again doing nothing differently this happens. Does it matter if we let it sit for too long before baking it? Or is there any difference placing it on the upper shelf when baking?
I used to pipe all out then take turns to bake them tray by tray. I read some people use rainbow dust as colouring, i have my own brand which is slightly pricy so i wonder if rainbow dust is good, do you have any idea? Then put the seccond macaron on top and finish with some raftisnow.
It looks like a tower of macarons and raspberry and when you cut it open, some delicious jam runs out! Corinna, You can even let it sit out overnight to great results, but a couple of hours should be more than enough just until the tops are dry to your touch. I also recommend baking them on the middle shelf for even baking. Just remember to rotate the sheets once in the middle of baking! Lastly, that sounds delicious! I gave them a shot two weeks ago and they were a complete failure. I see a couple of places at least where I made mistakes that probably cost me the chance at success on my first attempt one of which was that I rushed through everything.
I intend to follow all of this and try again. Thanks for the great tips Amrita! Do you have any tips for saving this situation? I make these in humid weather often. I sometimes do this with very fresh or runny whites as well. Great tips! Wish I read this before I baked my first attempt of French macarons. They turned out flat with no feet. Thanks for sharing.

Hi there Just made my first attempt at Macarons, one of many I think!! Anyway I added pink gel colouring and when they baked, the tops are not pink, but have coloured a light brown. I had my oven at a slightly lower heat because it does get quite hot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I have some more egg whites I the fridge ready for another attempt. Ok, but which of the dozens of online recipes did you find success with?
I have so much problems with the weather that i live in and sometimes i have to add in or leave out one ingredient or two because of this same problem…i live in a country where it is hot and humid! And my question would be if this takes a toll on the macarons…anything to help with would be most appreciated. Instead, leave them out to dry for several hours before baking. Hope that helps! Hi, I have tried making these few times already. The first time i made, it came out good with feet and everything.
After that first time, it has been a nightmare. The first time i made, the shell dried within 15 minutes. For the other trials, it took forever to dry or it never dried completely and i baked them like that and it came out with no feet and some of them had cracks. What am i doing wrong? I went for one macaron class it came out perfect. One of the common causes of failed macarons is home ground almond meals. Just place the almonds in a food processor or coffee grinder and pulse. Do not do a long spin as this will cause the almond oils to be released. Add a few tablespoons of confectioners sugar from your recipe to avoid the nuts from releasing their oils.
Then sift it through a strainer. Place the big bits back in the food processor or grinder until it is all a fine powder. When it comes to almond meals two things are very important — one that the almonds be finely ground and second that they are not too oily. Macarons are best eaten a day or two after they are baked when they ripen. And they are best stored in the fridge. Be careful when handling the shells.
Since the shell cracks very easily. Having said that — We always eat them as soon as they are assembled. Finally, as you can see I have a lot of macaron recipes here on the blog for you to try.

If the batter is not mixed enough, too much air remains in the macarons so the macarons dry out and crack instead during baking preventing it from rising. Perhaps the macarons shells are too wet. There is too much moisture in the batter. This often happens due to high humidity too. Place the tray below a fan or dehumidifier.
Aged eggs work better in places with high humidity. Tapping the macarons on the counter tap helps remove air bubbles trapped in the batter. If too much air remains trapped in the shells they tend to cause cracks. Other reason could also be oven temperature is too high. This can be heartbreaking but often the reason is that the batter was too thin so the shells were very delicate. Under mixing the batter can be the cause of moisture retention and too much air remaining inside the batter creating delicate shells.
Feet is that bottom frilled ruffled look. When you touch the top will be hard but still firm and not move around. Check at 2 minute intervals. A tablespoon of almond flour helps thicken macaron batter. One cause of runny macaron batter usually is food colors. Always use gel food colors these do not affect the consistency of your macaron batter.
Under mixed — If the batter is not mixed enough, too much air remains in the macarons so the macarons dry out and crack instead during baking preventing it from rising as well as getting feet. Often the problem with hollow macarons or exploded macarons is oven too hot. When you bake at a high temperature the macarons. The batter at the edges heats and expands too quickly causing the feet to explode.

Often this means that the batter is not mixed enough. The under-mixed batter can cause a lot of issues mentioned above from cracked shells, no feet to hollow macarons. Best to mix well with the spatula. They should take around 15 to 18 minutes 3-inch macarons. Ideally, about 13 to 30 minutes. In high humidity, it can take up to an hour to dry as well.
When touched the top of the macaron should be dry to touch. Rainy, humid weather is not good macaron baking days. You can fill macarons with a simple buttercream or explore different fillings and frosting. My favorite is gourmet buttercream recipes like French , Swiss or German. They are rich and less sweet than classic American buttercream.
I like adding fruit fillings and curds in the middle of the frosting. This is a great way to take your macarons to the next level.

While I know these aren't always appreciated, these are necessary to make this a win: win situation for both you and me. How many folds do you make? That is the best guide. Look at the method I use… Spread… then bring it back together. Consistency is when you have thick pourable lava. Also do not whip your egg whites too fast.. That usually will result in the egg looking volume too quickly. I know this sounds like a lot to pay attention to but once you find that right method you will enjoy making macarons often.
The Big Secret of Macarons
Hi Veena. I made macarons yesterday and they turned out beautifully. But a few hours later i tried to take them off the parchment paper and the bottoms stuck and shell was hollow. What do you think? Thank you! If the bater was not mixed properly you would have cracks on the shell. Sounds like they needed to bake longer.
Were they wet inside too? If baked properly they do need to cool on the parchment paper not cooling rack. I have left them on the parchment for hours and they do come out beautifully. Sounds like you baked them less longer. You are almost there. Once you get them you will be in Macaron heaven. Have fun.
I made these macarons twice and they came out beautifully but mine are a little grainy looking on top. Do you know what I can do to get rid of that? I sifted the powdered sugar and almond meal 3 times after sending them through a food processor. Sorry for the late reply Hayleigh. Not sure why your comment was in spam. Gald your macarons turned out beautifully twice. Perhaps check with the powder sugar you are using. Beet sugar tends to stay grainy for a longer time. Veena — Thank you Thank you Thank you. Thank you so much. I made my fist successful macaron with your recipe.
I had come to hate macarons but you redeemed me. I made three batches and all turned out great. Thank you so much for these tips and recipes. Aww, thank you, Kristen. I know that feeling. Happy to hear the recipe worked out well for you. Thanks for coming back to write this feedback. Love to hear from people who try my recipes. Have a nice day. Enjoy making more macarons. I have not used a microwave convention Sweta — not sure if it works the same way.
I use a convection oven and this is the temperature I use. Veena, I also use a convection oven that automatically converts the temperature and drops it 25 degrees. Is your recommendation of degrees the convection temperature or does it drop to degrees? Hey Pam. Quick View.
