blueberry macarons

I'm in love with this beautiful cookies at a first bite, as you all know French macaron is really hard to make, tricky and moody But as long as you know the oven temperature and not over mixed the batter most of the time it came out perfectly, as a restaurant owner at BoBoKo Indonesian Cafe I have to make this "prettylicious" French macaron three times a week. Our customers was surprise they found a french macaron in Indonesian restaurant, I love to tell the story why there is French macarons in our cafe if they ask about it.










Ingredients :
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 eggs white
- 3 Tbsp granulate sugar
- 3 drop purple food coloring

Filling :
- 8 oz mascarpone cheese/room temperature
- 4 Tablespoon powder sugar
- 3/4 cup stonewall kitchen blueberry jam

- Mix well to incorporate powder sugar and almond, Incorporate the beaten egg whites into the dry ingredients using large spatula, mix well and fold the mixture
Then work in the mixture (macaronage ) using plastic scraper, press down well with the scraper,going back and forward,to press out the oxygen from the white, Do this for 2-3 minutes until you have smooth mixture.

- Attach 1/2 inch plain tip to piping bag, scoop batter into bag pipe 1-inch circles about 2-inch apart onto prepare cookie sheets, tap cookies sheet on flat surface to remove air bubbles and set aside,let macarons rest uncovered until tops harden slightly, this takes from 15 minutes to an hour in more humid condition, when the batter does not stick, macarons are ready to bake.
