Cajun Macaroons

Macaroon3

Failure. I had such high hopes of Cajun Macaroons when I found this recipe.

But look at them. Flat, sticky and soft. They were way too spread-y on the tray and almost turned into one big, macaroon.

If you close your eyes they taste quite nice, and the chewiness has some appeal, but they didn’t turn out as I expected. Next time I’ll just eat the marzipan straight from the packet.

Still, if you want to give them a whirl, knock your socks off. Let me know if they work out.

250gm marzipan
3 lightly beaten egg whites
1/2 Cup plain flour
1/2 Cup caster sugar
1/2 Cup icing sugar

Work the marzipan until it is smooth, then add the egg whites and blend, then the flour and sugars.

Macaroon

Drop and shape on a lined baking tray (if you don’t line the tray you’ll be sorry when it comes time to wash up) and bake at 140 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.
