This week we have a lovely recipe for rose and chamomile macaroons made using our Brightening Facial Exfoliator.

  

Ingredients

 

Cases

  • 200g Caster Sugar 
  • 80ml Water 
  • 200g Icing Sugar 
  • 200g Ground Almonds 
  • 160g Egg Whites 
  • x1 Fresh Vanilla Pod

 

Filling

  • 10ml Brightening Facial Exfoliator (contains chamomile and rose)
  • 60g Butter 
  • 100g Icing Sugar

 

Cases

1.  Preheat the oven to 145c.

2.  Weigh 160g egg whites & split in half. Whisk one ½ into soft peaks and set aside.

3.  Mix your caster sugar and water in a pan on the heat, constantly stirring, until it reaches 110c.

4.  Strip the vanilla pod & add the seeds to the mix at the last moment.

5.  Add tHe sugar mix slowly in a thin steady stream to the whisked egg whites, while beating hard (or use a food mixer!) and don’t stop until the mixture has cooled to room temperature.

6.  Stir the ground almonds & icing sugar together before adding the second ½ of your egg whites to create a paste.

7. Start by stirring in a third of the vanilla mix to your almond mix before slowly folding in the rest, trying to keep as much air as possible in the batter.

8. Spoon – as we did, or pipe – as pro’s do… onto a macaroon tray & leave to rest for 30mins.

9. Pop in the oven for 13mins, and bring out to cool before removing them from their silicon bed and filling with delicious exfoliator!

 

Filling

1. Use warm butter and thoroughly mix in the exfoliator.

2.  Add the icing sugar to taste – depends how thick/sweet/strong you like your texture and flavour.

3. Spoon (or again pipe if you’re feeling fancy) onto the macaroon cases once cooled.

4. Taste…
