Ingredients

  • 181g egg white
  • 244g almond flour
  • 244g confectioner's sugar
  • 244g sugar
  • 60g water
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine sugar and water together in a small pot.

    Place half egg white (122g) in mixing bowl.

    Grind almond flour and 10X in food processor until fine. Sift.

    Heat sugar and water to 235 degrees F. Use a candy thermometer.

    As sugar/water reaches 220 degrees, whisk whites with 1 Tablespoon sugar. Increase speed and whisk to medium peak.

    Pour hot sugar down the side of the bowl and beat until bowl is warm. Pour remaining egg whites (122g) into almond flour.

    Add meringue to the almond flour/egg white mixture. Add flavoring and coloring at this time.

    Drop a spoonful of batter into the bowl, it should take 30 seconds to disappear into the rest of the batter.

    Pipe the batter onto parchment paper. Let sit on flat half sheet trays for at least a half hour, until skin forms.

    Bake at 325 degrees for about 5minutes. The bases should have feet and be cooked on top, although the feet may be sticky.

    Let cool and then peel off of parchment.

    Fill with your favorite buttercream filling.
