These are my first macarons! The first two tries didn't result in anything you could put on a plate. Haha. These are actually pretty tasty too. They're made with confectioner's sugar, blanched almond flour (sifted), egg whites at room temp., granulated sugar, a pinch of salt, a pinch of cream of tartar, and a squirt of green food coloring. The filling is vanilla buttercream frosting. Baked at 300 degrees (convection) for 11 minutes on a silicone baking mat. I learned a lot from the baking blogs and YouTube videos. But some things I had to discover for myself. For example, if you get even a smidgen of egg yoke in the bowl, it won't get frothy. Toss it out and start over. But this is fun and I'll do it again.
