Right off the bat, we want to inform our audience that the recipe we will be putting out is perfect for 40 outer shells (20 whole Macarons) altogether.

How It’s Made

1: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. This helps get a fine deep bake and yet keep the end product nice and crispy.

2: You’ll need a food processor to blend the confectioner's sugar, almond meal, and lavender until they are fine, whisk the mixture into a large bowl for later use.

3: Whisk the egg whites and sugar together in a stand mixer bowl at power level 4 for 3 minutes, now turn the power level to 7 and whisk for additional 3 minutes, increase power level to 8 and whisk for another minute or two until you find a stiff meringue in the bowl. Add food color at this stage and at power level 8, whisk again for a minute to mix the color rite up.

4: Drop all the almond meal mixture into the bowl in one motion, it is the best practice to use both a folding motion and a smearing motion to mix the dry ingredients and deflate the meringue against the side of the bowl respectively. Don’t be gentle with the batter, once finished it will be more consistent than you imagined.

5: Fill the batter in a pastry bag with a coupler or a top (your choice). Pipe down shells on the parchment paper placed on the baking tray in the size of a quarter (US currency, of course, about 1 inch), ensure they are spaced about an inch apart at least.

6: This stage will require some whacking of the tray against the floor or the kitchen counter maybe, do this twice and then rotate and hold the other end of the tray and whack again for a couple of times to sit the batter down smoothly.

7: Put and leave in the oven for about 15 minutes, the shells should be easy to pick up from the tray at this stage.

8: Leave to cool off to a room temperature, in the mean time in the bowl of the stand mixer, beat the butter for 2 minutes and add confectioner’s sugar ever so slowly and whisk till you can see everything nice and smooth, same thing for honey for another minute or so to smoothen everything up to make your honey

lavender filling for the macarons.

9: Fill the shells with the prepared honey lavender buttercream and your delicious Honey Lavender Macarons are ready to be served.
