French Macaroons-Gluten Free/ GMO Free
2 cups almond flour (Buy almonds in bulk section and ground it yourself-saves a lot of money)
1 1/2 cups organic powered sugar
3 large organic egg whites
dash of salt
3 tablespoons organic sugar
all natural red food coloring- it is not as vibrant as artificial red food coloring
Bottom of macaroons
3 oz bittersweet chocolate
2 tablespoons butter- not margarine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix almond flour and confectionery flour together. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Do not skip the paper. Do not use aluminum foil or nothing at all, it will stick and you’ll be very sorry–I was.
Beat egg whites with salt, add sugar slowly. Beat until the whites hold stiff, glossy peaks. Add food color. Meringue will deflate, don’t get worried.
Pour into a bag and pipe out onto parchment paper.
Important-let sit for 20-30 min’s.
Bake on 300 for 20-30 minutes. Cool completely before you try to take them off the paper. After cooled. Melt chocolate with butter, stir–then add vanilla. Dip macaroon bottoms into chocolate. Let cool upside down until chocolate is hard.
