• 250g TPT = almond powder and icing sugar - sifted = 1 generous Cup

* Amounts of flavors, pastes etc. will vary with personal taste

Preparation:

To make the macarons, sieve the sugar and the TPT very fine. Put aside.
Now whisk the egg white together with the second part of sugar at middle speed.

Gradually whisk the egg white mixture to become very stiff. * if cooking the sugar for the meringue cook to 245° F and follow the standard procedure for making a cooked meringue adding color in the end.
