It’s Macaroon Time!

If you’re macaroon mad, try our recipe for creamed blue cheese and white chocolate macaroons!

This recipe will make 36 macaroons.

Ingredients - Macaroons

  • Chopped white chocolate kept in the freezer
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 225g icing sugar

Ingredients - Filling

  • 30g double cream
  • 30g crème fraiche
  • 200g blue cheese

Method – Macaroons

  1. 1. Sift the icing sugar and almonds together onto a sheet of greaseproof baking paper.
  2. 2. Beat the egg whites till they have increased by half, now add the sugar and beat till stiffened.
  3. 3. Fold the almond mixture into the egg white gently and thoroughly till the mix is smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  4. 4. Pipe the macaroons about 2cm onto a greaseproof paper lined baking sheet, top with a little white chocolate.
  5. 5. Leave the macaroons for 12-15 minutes to dry slightly, bake at 180c for 10 minutes.
  6. 6. Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes, tip the tray up slightly and drizzle cold water under the paper – this will help to release the macaroons.
  7. 7. Place them on a cooling wire.

Method – Filling

  1. 1. Cream together ingredients until smooth. Place in a piping bag and use.

Serving
