Macarons and macaroons are different

Almond macaroons

I know the differences but some people aren't aware of them and call them both so thought I would write both - in fact when searching the net it comes up with both ways of spelling it, weird :-)

I am looking for a macaron recipe :-)

I am also interested to see if anyone has a tested recipe as I will be making 100 + macarons for daughter's wedding in January. I would also like to know how far ahead I could make them, and sandwich them together a few days before the wedding.

I have had success with Adriano Zumbo's recipes. The only one I have made is the salted caramel ones. It will take a few tries to get it right as it is tricky. I find his packet macaroons just don't turn out the same as making it from scratch. http://thecakemistress.com/blog/articles/macaron-adriano-zumbo/

Thanks marcs. do you age your egg whites? That seems really strange lol

Chef_deus701, May 20, 9:11 am
I make them, sandwiched them with ganache and freeze them. They freeze quite well and just take 20mins to thaw (depending on how big they are).

No never have aged them but I do make sure they are not really fresh eggs. Not sure if you get this in NZ but we do here in Auz we get fresh pure egg whites in a carton. The frozen ones have things added to them. That way I don't have left over egg yolks.
