Method

  1. Place the egg whites in the bowl and use the dual whisk on Auto to whisk until soft peaks form (approximately 60 seconds). Do not over whisk.
  2. Add the caster sugar a third at a time and mix on Auto until mixture is thick and glossy (approximately 30 seconds).
  3. Remove the whisk and add the almonds, icing sugar and vanilla extract to the bowl. Fit the folding tool and use speed 2 to fold the mixture (approximately 60 seconds). DO NOT over mix. Any unprocessed mix should be gently folded in by hand.
  4. Line two baking trays with silicone paper and pipe out the mix.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 140°C/275°F/Gas mark 1 for 20 minutes for the small macaroons and 45 minutes for the larger size.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing from the silicone paper.
