Pink Macaroons with Strawberry Filling are an old childhood favourite from a bygone day. These are so easy to make and so tasty. Using strawberry jam and a filling and as part of the macaroon mix gives it a burst of flavour. Also these can be made in advance and kept in the fridge and serves as a biscuit or as a snack.

Instructions

  • Carefully separate the egg whites from the yolks
  • Pour the egg whites into a glass bowl and and whisk until light and frothy.
  • Gradually add the sugar whilst continuing to whisk until “stiff peaks” are formed.
  • Combine the Almond Flour and the powdered sugar and sieve into the the whisked egg whites.
  • Slowly fold the sugar and flour into the egg whites. If you rotate the bowl after every fold, the mixture should stay light.
  • Add the food colouring and mix very gently.
  • Add the mixture to a piping bag.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pipe a small disc onto the parchment leaving a space between each disc (using a circular motion seems to be the best way).
  • Once all of the mixture has been used, place the trays to one side for about an hour so they start to skin over.
  • Preheat the oven to 285ºF (140ºC).
  • In a clean bowl combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk and mix until smooth. Then add the remaining strawberry jam and mix until combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a clean piping bag and ready to fill the macaroons.
  • Place the macaroons into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes until the have risen.
  • Once cooked, let them cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Filling is very easy. Pipe a circular motion onto one half of a macaroon and sandwich with another macaroon.
  • You can add a bit of jam in the centre of each macaroon for added flavour.
  • Keep chilled until needed and enjoy.
