Holy Guacamole, Batman…These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing.

Let’s get reeeeeally honest right here, right now.

I was afraid to try making french macaron cookies at first–and the recipes I’d tried in the past only came out so-so.

But, let’s be clear, you gotta hav a few things before you start.

Namely:

Why, you ask? Well, french macaron cookies are kind of tempramental and you can’t just harry off and make them willy-nilly.

You have to measure, sift, and then do everything in order.

Whip the eggs?

Yep.

All the way to the stiff peak stage. But no further.

Then you have to mix everything.

A lot.

Until you hit the ribbon stage–that point where you can make a figure 8 with the batter without breaking the ribbon? But then stop, immediately.

Then, and only then, can you put all that yummy Churro Macarons dough (and it is SO YUMMY–I did sneak a taste) in the piping bag and layout your little circles of future-shell-yumminess.

And then bang the ever-loving-sheet out of the baking pan.

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

You know, to gt all the bubbles out.

Because that’s the thing about french macarons, you have to bang the pan–a lot.

LOL!

From there, it’s sprinkle funtimes with these Churro Macarons.

You can put as much or as little cinnamon/sugar on top–they’re you’re freaking macarons…

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

Oh, and loooook at all that cinnamon goodness.

You’ll notice there’s not a lot of bubbles–there was a lot of beating of that pan, and a little popping with a toothpick. LOL!

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

And, for me, this is when the rubber meets the road.

If you haven’t made a fantastic shell, you have to just go back to the drawing board.

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

Then there’s the filling and buttercream.

It has to be amazing.

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

And only homemade will do.

You can’t just toss anything between those perfect shells.

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

Because, what?

You’re going to just plop some canned frosting in between those shells that you took like an hour to cook?

Nope.

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

So, for these Churro Macarons, it had to be cinnamon-ey.

Because, I’m all about the cinnamon on a churro, it’s the meaning of a churro’s existence.

Holy Guacamole, Batman...These Churro Macarons are Absolutely Amazing. I can't tell you how amazing these Churro French Macaron Cookies are. Seriously. #macaron #frenchmacaron #macaroncookies #easymacaroncookies

And I’m going to just tell you right now that, if you make the mistake of not having a caramel-filled french macaron cookie in your life, you’re missing out.

Because that caramel is to die for.

Ingredients

  • Shells
  • 4 oz. confectioners sugar
  • 2 oz. almond flour I recommend Bob’s Red Mill
  • 1 oz granulated sugar
  • 2 egg whites at room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Cinnamon Buttercream
  • 1 stick room temperature butter
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • Filling
  • Caramel sauce
  • Topping
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Instructions

  1. Weigh out all your ingredients.
  2. Next, sift your powdered sugar on a scale. Add in your sifted almond flour. Give all of these ingredients a quick whisk to make sure there are no lumps. 
  3. Add your egg whites to the bowl of your mixer and start mixing on a medium speed until they get frothy. Add in the salt.
  4. Gradually add in your sugar to the egg whites and mix on a medium speed until you get a soft peak consistency. 
  5. After the egg whites are the right consistency, add about ½ of the dry mixture to the egg whites and fold in until there are no dry spots left.
  6. Add in the remaining dry mixture to the meringue and fold in until there are no dry spots. Begin to check for the “ribbon” stage, where the batter falls off in ribbons and you can make a figure 8 without it breaking off. Once you get to this consistency stop folding.
  7. Prepare your piping bag with a small round tip. Place your bag in a large cup to make it easier to add your batter. Slowly add in your batter.
  8. Place the macaron template under a silicon mat on a baking sheet.
  9. Hold your piping bag completely vertical when piping and lift straight up. Making about 1 1/2 to 2 inch circles.
  10. After you have piped all the batter, bang the baking sheet on the counter 10-20 times (seriously) to remove all air bubbles. Use a toothpick or something sharp to pop them. Top the shells with cinnamon sugar mixture 
  11. Now it is time to let them dry. Leave them sitting on the counter for 30-60 minutes until you can touch them and you can feel a “shell” form over them. No batter should come off on your finger.
  12. preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. and bake your macarons for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. When you touch the top of the macaron it should not wiggle around on the “feet”.
  13. Allow them to cool COMPLETELY before taking them off the baking sheet.
  14. To make the buttercream add the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer or large mixing bowl. Mix until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.. Add in powdered sugar one cup at a time and mix until combined. Add in vanilla, cream, and cinnamon and mix on high speed for 6-7 minutes. Place in a piping bag or large ziplock bag. 
  15. To assemble the macarons, pipe a circle of cinnamon buttercream in a circle on half of the macarons leaving a hole in the middle. Fill the middle with about ½ tsp caramel sauce and top with the remaining macaron shells. 
  16. Allow to “mature” in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours and enjoy!!
