Welcome to how to cook that I am Ann Reardon.
In the words of my friend that I gave these to they are crazy delish, to die for and her
favourite dessert of all time, EVER. So for all of you who have been requesting salted
caramel macarons here’s how I make them… To make your shells follow the the easy macaron
recipe video, I will link to that in the description below this video. If you’ve never macarons
before then I suggest you also watch the FAQ video.
You can colour your shells slightly browny using your gel colours.
Pipe them onto your non stick baking paper and slide them onto a baking tray. Bang it
firmly on the bench a few times on turn the tray and bang it on the other side as well.
Take a little bit of raw sugar and sprinkle it on top of each macaron. And in the oven
when it bakes that kind of looks caramely on top.
You do not need to leave this recipe to sit on the bench, put them straight into the oven.
Oven temperature is really important with macarons so if your oven is dodgy buy an oven
thermometer and check the temperature inside is exactly 150 degrees centigrade and don’t
open the oven while they are baking or you are going to make the oven temperature change.
Take them out of the oven once they are done and let them cool and then gently peel them
off the paper and pair similar sized shells together.
Warm a small amount of your dulce de leche that we made in the episode a couple of weeks
ago, and drip it onto the centre of the shells. Then leave that to cool completely.
While that’s cooling place a half a cup of your dulce deleche in a mixing
bowl with a tiny bit of flaked sea salt. If you want you can add more for a stronger salty
taste, but I like it subtle salty flavour. Add 1/2 cup of softened butter and beat it
until it comes together nicely. Place that in a ziplock bag and put a small blob into
the centre of each macaron. Put the lids on top and push down gently to straighten them
up. Then if you are trying to eat well, I suggest
you have one and give the rest away before you eat them all, they are that good.
Thanks to all of you who support me by watching these videos, commenting and sharing them
with your friends I really do appreciate all the good stuff you do and I will be back next
