French Macarons

Light, airy, and elegant, these brightly colored French macarons are perfectly accented by fruits like kiwi and strawberry.


1 cup powdered sugar

3/4 cup almond flour

2 egg whites, room temperature

1/8 tsp. cream of tartar

1/4 cup superfine sugar

Markon First Crop Strawberries, sliced thin

1 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced thin


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Process confectioners' sugar and almond flour in a food processor; sift.

In a standing mixer, beat whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Add superfine sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold flour mixture into beaten whites.

Put batter in a pastry bag fitted with plain round tip; pipe small 1 inch rounds on baking sheet. Bake until macarons are firm, approximately 10 minutes.

Fill with chocolate ganache or buttercream frosting and sliced strawberries or kiwifruit.
