Hello Dear Friends,

The father of cookies, in our opinion, the ancestor of even macarons, macaroon is respected and loved :) Yes, it finally met you...

It may have surprised you that I made such an introduction to the recipe, but I think you can guess how many questions and requests I received about this recipe. Finally, I had the opportunity to photograph the recipe step by step and write down the tricks.

First of all, I should point out that instead of almond flour, mostly hazelnut flour is used in the macaroon cookies you buy from patisseries. Yes, I know this surprises you, but unfortunately it's true. EE, but if you say that we smell and taste like almonds, I can say that it is also a liquid bitter almond flavor. Of course, there are those who make it with almond flour or half hazelnut and half almond, but we don't know because they don't share their secrets... Ours is really almond flour :)

patisserie recipes

If you are going to prepare this recipe, you should definitely have a scale because it is very important to keep the recipe ingredients in balance. Don't say, "Is egg whites weighed too", they are being weighed :) Also, have a plastic piping bag and greaseproof paper ready for the baking tray.

There are 3 important tricks in this recipe. When we started to cook the first almond mixture in the pot. If the cookie dough, which we cook by stirring constantly, takes 4-5 seconds to spread, it means that it has reached a consistency that can be taken from the pot. If it stays too watery, it will spread too much on the tray and will not look like in the photo.

acibadem_cookies_recipe

The other trick is to put the cookies on a cloth moistened with plenty of water after they come out of the oven and let the cookies separate from the paper by themselves. If they are not sufficiently moistened, they become empty when leaving the paper and they do not stick to each other. Then no matter what you use, you can't stick it together.

acibadem_cookies_how to_make

Finally, after going to the second stage of baking and increasing the temperature, check the cookies at frequent intervals. Take it out of the oven as it turns golden yellow, if the color is darker than it should be, the cookies start to harden.

There are around 22-24 cookies in total, so you have over 40 single macaroon cookies.

Love…

Ingredients for Macaroons Recipe

  • 250 g almond flour
  • 375 gr granulated sugar
  • 200 g egg white
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 drop of almond flavor (optional)

How to Make Macaroons Recipe?

  1. Put the almond flour, granulated sugar and egg whites in a medium saucepan. Mix thoroughly with a wire whisk in the saucepan.
  2. Put it in a saucepan and cook on low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring. (If it takes 10-15 seconds to spread when you mix it, it means it has a consistency.)
  3. Pour the thickened mixture on the kitchen counter, pour 2 tablespoons of lemon juice on it, spread it on the counter with the help of a spatula, collect it and cool it. (In this way, it will cool faster and the lemon juice will mix into the dough)
  4. Put the dough at room temperature in a piping bag.
  5. Squeeze 2-3 cm in diameter at 3-4 cm intervals on the tray on which you laid greaseproof paper.
  6. Bake for 130 minutes in a preheated 30 degree oven. After 30 minutes, increase the heat to 150 degrees and bake for about 10-12 minutes until the color of the cookies reaches the desired shade (be very careful at the end of the first 30 minutes, continue to bake by checking the color of the cookies).
  7. Before taking the cookies out of the oven, lay a damp cloth on the kitchen counter.
  8. Take the cookies from the tray with the paper and place them on this wet cloth. (If the paper is not moist enough, the cookies will stick to the paper and will fall apart when you try to remove it)
  9. Stick the cookies you separated from the moistened greaseproof paper together and put them on the serving plate.

    Hello there
    I visit often to receive inspiration from your beautiful blog. Acibadem is one of my favorite cookies, but I still do not dare. Since Begendik in Ankara, Kocatepe, and Flamingo Kapali in Tunali, Necatibey Meram did not do as it used to do, it's time to come back to work.
    But I have one caveat: The cookies will be flat, the top will be like glass and the crack will be like cracked earth, and the inside will be soft. What are the conditions that allow this? I'm afraid of spoiling all the beautiful and expensive materials...

      Hello,

      Unfortunately, many precious places succumb to time and conditions. First of all, don't forget to follow the tricks I gave you. It is important that you know your oven temperature well. Cook less, cook more, experience a little. The rest is just like I said.

      A classic patisserie, almond doesn't smell like that, I guess because the bitter almond flavor gives it the smell.

    First of all, as a bitter almond lover, I would like to thank you for your recipe. I also made it last night, but even though I weighed your recipe exactly, it was runny and did not thicken. After 10 minutes, I was able to thicken it with 150 gr almond flour. By boiling it that way, in 10 minutes. I made it darker. It was very well cooked, but it did not crack like the ones in the patisserie. I tasted it in the evening, the flavor was very good, but I finished it and they didn't stick. They were sticky when I got up in the morning and tasted them, but the outside was hard enough to tire the teeth.

      Hello, Ms. Ümran, first of all, good luck to your hands, you may have hardened due to the addition of almond flour you made. Usually, it is difficult to keep the consistency in the first try. It is sufficient to moisten the wax paper for it to combine. So the cookies stick easily. Yours sincerely

    Try it with walnuts instead of almond flour. It is much better. The recipe rates are sufficient, but the amount is too much for the tray. In the same proportions, 160 g egg whites, 300 g granulated sugar and 200 g walnut, hazelnut or almond flour fit perfectly on a baking tray.

    Greetings

    Dough cooking times in the recipe differ in both sentences, I wonder which one is correct.

    “If the cookie dough we cook by stirring takes 4-5 seconds to spread, it means that it has reached a consistency that can be taken from the pot.”

    “Put the pot on the stove and cook on low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring. (If it takes 10-15 seconds to spread when you mix it, it means it has a consistency.)”

    Thank you

    Hello,

    I just tried this too, the measurements are perfectly consistent, contrary to what the person above claimed. But this 130C seemed too little to me. I waited for 15 minutes, but the dough was still the same color, that is, in dough form. This corresponds to 266F as they use F in Canada.

    For example, while making pizza, I cook for 430 minutes at 220F (30C). So I'm not sure if there is a difference in ovens. Some sites say use 150C, some say 200C. I would be glad if you have any information about this.

    I made it, it was delicious. Despite my first cooking, it was much more beautiful than the bitter almonds sold in the patisserie. I used half of the sizes and made a decision. If you can't be sure in your first try, you can reduce the risk of wastage by using half the material. Dimensions; 1 glass of hazelnut flour (since I have hazelnut at home, I used it in a rondo and only used it, 3 drops of egg white, 1 glass of powdered sugar and macaroon flavoring, 3 drops is all it takes.

    Maybe it was overcooked, but there was no liquefaction during the cooking process, it was too dense as in the picture. This is my 2nd try.
    Maybe it's because my sugar is brown sugar, because I use unrefined sugarcane sugar, maybe that's why.

    I make the almond flour and the flour of other nuts myself. I use it instead of white flour by adding baking powder in all my cakes and cakes. It's very nice. I buy unroasted raw almonds or hazelnuts or peanuts or walnuts whatever I want from the nut shop. I'm going through rondo. Here is flour for you!…
    Walnuts do not need peanuts, but it is especially good to peel the almonds. Then pour boiling water over the almonds and let it sit for 10 minutes. I wait, then I peel them off, dry them on a tray and dry them in the oven at 100 degrees veee rondo…

      Hello, Love, this situation changes according to the taste. My wife said I don't think you should add aroma, my mother-in-law said it was just right with the aroma. If you don't like bitter almonds, don't add flavoring or just drop a tiny drop. If you play with the amount of eggs, you will have to proportion and reduce all the ingredients. For the first try, in my opinion, definitely do not play. Yours sincerely
