From France To Asia....

Do you think we can move Laduree over to Asia???? According to the info I found, Macaroons are originated from Italy. They were actually made and sold by two nuns to support their living during the French Revolution. But then it is widely made & sold in France and accross all Europe. And now, it even spread all over to Asia. Cool huh! I'm not a Mac Mad. Just trying something new and glad that everything turned out exactly what I'm looking for.

Ingredients :
100gm egg white
2 tbsp sugar
a pinch of salt
220gm icing sugar
125gm almond meal
40gm black sesame powder

Method : Please refer here, except the baking method.

This round I actually raised the tray 1" above the middle deck, bake at preheated oven 150'C for 10 mins. Then rotate the tray and bake for another 10 mins on the bottom deck at 150'C. Every single macaroons turned out perfectly.

The bottom macaroons should look really smooth and dry.

What do you think about the mung bean paste fillings? Totally Asian, right!

Hi Kristy,

I've never made a macaron and probably never will. Yours look stunning! I can just imagine their taste with that filling!!!

Thanks for sharing...

P.S. Have you ever visited Kitchen Musings? I do believe Veron has filled her Macs with mung bean filling and other tasty fillings.
