I’m so excited to share an updated post on how to make my Italian meringue Macarons because it’s one of the recipes that I get the most amount of positive feedback on. Mostly because people have had so much trouble with making them and so when they try this recipe, they finally get it right! In my updated post I wanted to include even more helpful information on how to avoid common mistakes, and how to get these perfect with those iconic macaron feet!

I’m going to take you through all the things I’ve learned over a decade of making them. From mixing the batter properly, baking the shells to perfection and how to get them as perfect as the ones you find in French bakeries.

If you’re really into perfecting this fussy little French cookie, I’ve put together a whole guide on macaron making + troubleshooting tips and tricks that I think you’ll find helpful!

What makes a good macaron?

I know it must be obvious to some people, but I think it’s important to know what to look for in a macaron to know that you’ve been successful in making them. So let’s break down what makes a good macaron!

Italian Meringue Macarons - close up wide shot of macaron interior
  • Chewy interior – the interior of a macaron should be soft and chewy with no gaps or air pockets.
  • Crispy exterior – the exterior of your macaron should be shiny, smooth and slightly crispy.
  • Iconic feet – those little feet at the bottom of your macaron happen when the shells are dried correctly, the oven is on the right setting and temperature and the steam has escaped the bottom of the macaron instead of through a crack at the top.
  • Consistency – the macarons should be uniform in their appearance, risen evenly on all sides, should all appear the same color and height.
  • Filling – I’ve seen some truly horrific looking macarons; I’ve made them myself! I think what really finishes a good macaron is the way the filling is added. It should be done using a piping bag fitted with a piping tip. You can use a star tip if you wish, but a more classic and much easier tip is a round tip. Fill your macarons about 3/4 of the way and then when you sandwich them and press them together, the filling should spread out to the edges of the macaron. I have a list of macaron fillings you can use at the end of the post!

What is the Italian Meringue French Macaron Method?

What I love about the Italian meringue method of making macarons is that it offers more consistent results compared to other methods. It differs to the French Meringue Macaron and Swiss Meringue Macaron recipe in that there’s an extra step of making a syrup which is then slowly poured into the egg whites to make a thick and glossy meringue.

Italian Meringue Macarons - meringue texture

This method makes a thicker meringue that is much more stable, which lowers the risk of overmixing the batter at the mixing stage. The shell is overall chewier and crispier too.

Macaronage! Mixing Stage. The most important part of making Macarons

The most important part of making macarons is mixing the macaron batter to the right consistency. No matter the type of macaron recipe I’m making, I always mix the batter the same.

Italian Meringue Macarons - how to mix macaron batter

I use a spatula to go around the bowl, then through the middle.

This essentially deflates the mixture to the right consistency which I call the ‘ribbon stage’ That’s when the batter falls off the spatula and back into the bowl in a ribbon then disappears into the batter after about 10 seconds. When you reach that point, stop mixing. If you mix beyond this point and deflate the batter too much it can prevent your macarons from rising in the oven and you’ll need to start again.

Making the syrup

Italian Meringue Macarons - making the syrup
  • Thermometer – To make the syrup, you’ll need a candy thermometer. I used a Lavatools Javelin Pro that I bought on Amazon. But you can use a traditional, clip on candy thermometer. You can’t make the syrup without a thermometer. It needs to be the exact right temperature for the recipe to work properly.
  • How to add the syrup to the egg whites – once the syrup reaches 114C / 237F you turn the mixer on medium speed and get the eggs nice and frothy. When the syrup reaches 118C / 244F you want to turn the mixer up to medium high and pour the syrup in a very slow and steady stream on the side of the bowl making sure it doesn’t touch the whisk or beaters.
  • What if my meringue is soupy? If your meringue will not thicken up once all the meringue is added it’s because the syrup was added too quickly. There’s no saving the meringue, you’ll need to start again.

Why is this Macaron recipe only offered in weight measurements?

A lot of dessert and baking recipes, especially this one, rely so heavily on accurate measurements for the recipe to work. Each ingredient comes together to play an important role that helps give these cookies their chewy texture, round form and iconic look. When you consider than cup measurements are different some countries it helps make things clear. 1 cup of water equals 236ml in the USA, in Australia it equals 250mls. That 14ml gap can have a huge impact on a lot of recipes. So, I’ve switched to offering recipes in grams. 100g will weigh the same in my kitchen as it does in your kitchen. If you want to learn more about using kitchen scales, I’ve got a Complete Guide On How To Measure Baking Ingredients Using Kitchen Scales!

These 3 tips will give you great macarons!

I do these three things every single time I make macarons and things go so much smoother.

  1. Read the recipe – no-brainer, but most people just choose a recipe and then start making it which can often lead to disaster. Some recipes require some prep ahead of time. I would recommend reading through this recipe before beginning to familiarize yourself with the steps. Read it, re-read it if you must so that you can understand each step. That will heighten your chances of successful macarons.
  2. Measure ingredients by weight – I expanded on this above, but measuring by weight is so important!
  3. Prepare your equipment – wipe your meringue mixing bowl down with some vinegar to get rid of any fat residue which will prevent your meringue from whipping up properly, line your baking trays with baking paper if using. Clear your bench, get rid of distractions.

French Macaron Troubleshooting

Cracks, no feet, lumpy, sticky macrons. Name a problem, I’ve encountered it in my over ten years of making these fussy French cookies. There are a lot of things that can wrong with a macaron, and for most, including me, it’s a practice makes perfect situation. You make them, have a nervous breakdown and then repeat that again until you figure out all the things that are going wrong. You get to know the recipe and eventually you get it right.

Ingredients You Need To Make Italian Meringue Macarons

  • Almond flour – is a finely ground almond mixture that has the skin taken off. This is different from Almond meal which has the skin left on. Both will work for this recipe, but you’ll get smoother macaron shells if you use almond flour. In Australia almond flour is sold as almond meal. If this is the case where you are, opt in for a good quality brand and see if you can spot in little brown flecks which will indicate that the skin was left on.
  • Powdered sugar – also known as icing sugar. Some powdered sugar known as ‘soft icing sugar’ can contain corn starch, ‘pure icing sugar’ doesn’t. Use pure icing sugar if you can. Soft Icing sugar will also work.
  • Egg whites – when separating the egg whites from the yolks, make sure you don’t get yolks in the white or your meringue will not whip up properly. The recipe states that you need 110g of egg whites. Half of this will be used for the almond and sugar paste, the other half will be used to make the meringue.
  • Granulated sugar – When making the syrup, use a silicone pastry brush dipped in water to brush away any sugar crystals that may form on the side of the pot as it bubbles away.
  • Vanilla Extract – I have a vanilla extract recipe on the blog that you can use. Vanilla bean paste will also work.
  • Food gel – food gel is different to liquid food coloring. It is much thicker and concentrated and a little goes a long way. Keep in mind that it’s normal for your macarons to go a little dull in color when they bake. For brighter colors, make sure you use almond flour.

How to make French Macarons using the Italian meringue method.!

  2. It will make the almond flour even finer.
  3. Run it through a sieve
  4. You’ll be left with about 1-2 tbsp of large pieces of almond flour.
  5. Add it to a bowl with the first portion of egg whites (55g). Mix until a paste forms.
Italian Meringue Macarons - steps 02
To make the syrup
  1. Add the sugar and water to a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. While the syrup is bubbling use a wet pastry brush to rush away any sugar crystals that may form on the sides of the pot.
  3. When the syrup reaches 114C / 237F begin whipping the second portion of egg whites.
Italian Meringue Macarons - steps 03
Make the meringue
  1. Get the egg whites nice and frothy by mixing on medium speed
  2. When the syrup reaches 118C / 245F, turn the mixer up to medium high and very slowly pour the syrup into the egg whites.
  3. After about 5 minutes of whipping, it will be thick, glossy and have a birds beak at the top.
Italian Meringue Macarons - steps 04
The mixing stage (macaronage)
  1. Add a spatula full of meringue into the almond paste mixture and mix.
  2. Add the rest of the meringue and food gel coloring if using. You want to mix carefully. Use a spatula to scrape around the bowl
  3. Then through the middle.
  4. It will eventually reach the ribbon stage which is when the batter falls off the spatula in a ribbon and disappears back into the batter after about 10 seconds.
Italian Meringue Macarons - steps 05
Piping the macarons
  1. Fit the end of a piping bag with a round piping tip.
  2. Put the bag into a large and tall cup. This will help it stay up as you fill it.
  3. Fill with the batter.
  4. Twist the end and you’re ready to pipe!
Italian Meringue Macarons - steps 06
  1. Pipe your macarons about 3cm / 1 1/4 inch wide and about 2cm / 3/4 inch apart.
  2. If you see any bubbles use a toothpick to pop
  3. Then fill in.
  4. Let them dry until you can gently touch them and they’re not sticky to touch. They will still be soft.
  5. They’re ready to bake! Bake for 8 minutes on 150C / 302F.
Italian Meringue Macarons - steps 07
  1. Once baked, let them cool completely. Then pair them up. Fill one half of the cookies with your filling of choice (list at the bottom of the post)
  2. Then sandwich them up.

Tips and Tricks For Recipe Success!

  • Make sure you prep ahead of time! Clean your meringue mixing bowl with white vinegar and line your baking tins with baking paper (if using). I used silicone baking mats.
  • Measure out using kitchen scales – measuring ingredients out by weight and not cups is the best way to get consistent results every time! I wrote all about this in my post about using digital kitchen scales!
  • When separating the eggs, make sure you don’t get egg yolks in the white otherwise your meringue won’t whip up properly.
  • To get rid of large air bubbles in the macarons, use a toothpick and pop the air bubbles. Then fil the air bubble in with the macaron batter around the bubble.
  • Bake macarons in the middle rack of your oven. And bake one tray at a time.
  • To check if your macaron shells have dried enough, gently touch one and if it doesn’t stick, it’s ready to be baked.

Frequently Asked Questions about making Italian Meringue Macarons

Below are some commonly asked questions about making macarons, but I have way more and go into more depth in my Complete Guide To Making Macarons And Troubleshooting Tips post.

How do I store macarons?

Macarons can be store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. If it’s warm where you are, store them in the fridge. Especially if they’re filled with a filling that can melt.

Can macarons be frozen?

Absolutely! Pop them in an airtight container and freeze filled or unfilled for up to a month. Just keep in mind, macarons are porous and can soak up fridge and freezer smells.

How can I tell if my macarons are fully baked?

The first indicator is time. These macarons need to be baked for 15 minutes. The second way to check is to open the oven door and gently touch one of your macarons and give it a gentle jiggle. If the macaron shell jiggles from side to side on the macaron feet, then it’s not ready. The feet shouldn’t move from side to side when it’s fully baked.

How do you flavor macarons?

You can flavor macarons using freeze dried berries and fruit or by using small amounts of extracts or flavorings. I don’t flavor my macaron shells though because they’re so temperamental. It’s just easier to flavor your filling.

Can I make macarons without a food processor?

Absolutely! It’s a little more time consuming, but you can simply run the powdered sugar and almond flour through a fine mesh sieve 2-3 times.

Can I make macarons without a stand mixer?

Yes! You don’t need to use a stand mixer to make the meringue, you can use an electric hand mixer. I would recommend placing a tea towel on your bench

Which one do I use? Almond meal or almond flour?

Almond flour and almond meal are essentially the same thing. They’re ground up almonds. Almond meal is ground up almonds with the skin left on and almond flour has the skin taken off and is much finer in texture. So almond flour will give you smoother, brighter macarons.

Why is this recipe is in grams and not cups?

The short answer is accuracy! It is far easier, more accurate and you get more consistent results when you measure ingredients by weight, especially in dessert and bread baking! I wrote all about this in my post about using digital kitchen scales!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Calories: 69kcal


French Macarons

  • 150 g almond flour, see notes
  • 150 g powdered sugar, icing sugar (see notes)
  • 110 g egg whites, divided in half (read notes)
  • 150 g granulated sugar
  • 37 g water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Food gel coloring, optional


  • 1/2 batch American buttercream frosting
  • 1/2 batch chocolate ganache
  • 1/2 batch white chocolate ganache


Before you begin!

  • Measuring ingredients – Measure all ingredients before you begin the recipe.
  • Preparing baking trays – Line two half sheet baking trays with silicone baking mats or baking paper (not greaseproof paper). If using baking paper, dab a little macaron batter in the corner of your baking tray to help the baking paper stick to the baking tray. This will prevent it from flying around in the oven.
  • Cleaning bowls – Add 1 tsp white vinegar to a glass or metal bowl (not plastic) and wipe down until dry. This is the bowl you will use to make your meringue. This will help your egg whites beat up better and get rid of any fat residue on your bowls.


  • Almond mixture – Add your almond flour and powdered sugar to the bowl of a food processor and pulse about 10 times to help combine the ingredients and get a finer almond flour. Use a spatula to scrape the bottom of the food processor bowl and pulse another 8-10 times. Pour into a sieve over a large mixing bowl. Sift as much of the mixture as you can. You will have about 2-3 tsp of large almond pieces left. You can discard them.
  • Adding egg whites to almond mixture – Add 55g of the egg whites to the almond and sugar mixture and use a spatula to mix until a paste forms. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside.
  • To make the syrup – Add the granulated sugar and water to a medium sized pot. Give it a gentle stir, then place on medium heat and bring to a boil. Use a silicone pastry brush dipped in water to brush away any sugar crystals that may form on the side of the pot as it bubbles. This will prevent your syrup from crystalizing.
  • Making the meringue – Use a candy thermometer to measure your syrup temperature (this is the only way I’ve tested this recipe). When the syrup reaches 114C / 237F, add the remaining 55g of egg whites to the bowl you wiped down with vinegar and begin whipping on medium speed to get frothy. You can also use a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment.
  • When your syrup reaches 118C / 244F, turn your mixer up to medium high speed and carefully pour the hot syrup into the egg whites in a slow and steady stream. Please be careful when doing this part. Number one because the syrup is hot, but also if you add your syrup too quickly, you’ll cook the egg whites and they’ll turn into a runny soup. There’s no saving them if this happens.
  • Once you’ve poured all the syrup into the egg whites, turn the mixer up to high speed and continue whisking for 4-5 minutes. The side of the bowl should have cooled down quite a bit and the meringue will become thick and glossy. Stop the mixer, use a spatula to scrape down the bowl and add your vanilla extract and food gel coloring if using. Whisk on high speed for 1 more minute.

‘Macaronage’ (mixing stage)

  • What is it? – This is the most important part of making macarons and can make or break your cookies. The key is not to overmix your batter. Follow the instructions carefully and see the post for step-by-step instructions.
  • First mix – Add a spatula full of meringue to the almond mixture and use a spatula to mix until well combined. You don’t need to be too careful how you mix at this stage, this just helps thin out the batter a little.
  • How to mix – Add the remaining meringue to the almond mixture. Use your spatula to scrape around the bowl, then go through the middle of the mixture. I’ve left photo instructions in the post of this recipe. Repeat this until you reach the right consistency. This form of mixing helps incorporate the meringue into the almond mixture and also helps slightly deflate the meringue to the right consistency.
  • The right consistency – I call it the ‘ribbon stage’. It’s when the batter falls off your spatula, back into the mixture in a thick ribbon. It should disappear back into the batter after about 10 seconds. When you feel like you’re nearing this consistency, begin testing the batter for the ribbon stage. If it’s still too thick, mix another couple times and test again. If the mixture appears thinner than what’s described, there’s no saving it. Start again.
  • Transfer batter to piping bag – Fit the end of a large piping bag with a medium sized round tip. I used a 1.5cm / 1/2-inch round tip. Fill half way with batter and then twist the end while the piping tip is facing up.
  • Piping your Macarons – Pipe rounds of batter on your baking trays measuring about 3cm / 1 1/4 inch wide and about 2cm / 3/4 inch apart. Gently tap the tray on your workbench three times to allow any air bubbles to rise to the top and escape. If you see little bubbles on top of your piped macarons, use a toothpick to gently deflate them. This will help achieve a smooth macaron cookie.
  • Drying your macarons – Allow your macarons to dry for 30-60 minutes out in the open. This will help them form a skin which will prevent steam from escaping out the top of your macarons when they bake causing them to crack. Instead, the macarons will rise from the bottom forming their iconic ‘feet’. To test if they are dry enough, gently touch the top of a macaron. It will be really soft, but not sticky.
  • Baking your macarons – Ten minutes before the drying time is up, preheat a conventional oven (no fan) to 150C / 302F. Bake your macarons 1 tray at a time in the middle rack for 10-12 minutes. Once they’re baked, let them cool completely before you try to remove them from the tray.

To Finish Macarons

  • Once the macarons are baked, pair them up so they all have a size match. Not all the macarons will be the same size. So pairing them up will help them look neat and uniform.
  • Pipe filling on half the macarons and sandwich with the other halves. For filling options see the ingredients list.


Macaron TroubleshootingI ‘ve written a complete guide to Macaron troubleshooting including tips on how to make perfect macarons on the blog. Check it out. If you have any issues with your macarons there will be a section on the issue you had, why it happened and how to fix or avoid it.
Almond Flour vs Almond Meal. Is there a difference?Yes. Almond meal is ground up almonds that have the skin left on them. They will work for this recipe but not as good as Almond flour, which is a finely ground almond, much finer than almond meal, and has the skin taken off beforehand so it’s much paler in appearance. That means you’ll get much vibrant colors and smoother looking macarons.
Shopping for it – Something I’ve noticed in Australia is that almond meal and almond flour can often be called one thing: ‘almond meal’. So, look for good quality brands and for almonds that look like they’ve been finely ground. Almond flour can be found in most supermarkets and delis.
How to Make Your Own Almond Flour
  1. To blanch your almonds – Place your almonds with skin on in a large heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit for 60 seconds. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool them down. Squeeze each almond and it will slip out of the skin. Discard the skin, keep the almonds! Lay out on a baking tray and allow to dry completely before proceeding to the next step. If you’re using almonds that are already blanched, skip this step and do the next step!
  2. To blitz the almonds – place the blanched almonds into the bowl of a food processor. Blitz on high speed for 10 – 15 seconds. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl. Repeat this process until a fine powdery substance forms. IMPORTANT: Do not over mix. This can cause the mixture to become a paste. If this happens, start again. Overmixing can also cause the almonds to heat in the food processor which releases their natural oils. This can cause problems down the line when making your macarons.
Powdered sugar – In Australia, we call this icing sugar. To get the best results, use pure icing sugar. Soft Icing Sugar contains corn starch which can muck up your end results. If you can’t get pure icing sugar, use the one that contains corn starch. I’ve tested it both ways and had results come out fine, but gotten better results with pure icing sugar. And don’t use no-name brands! Use good quality sugar. I use the CSR brand. The Woolworths and Coles brand one (in Australia), in my opinion, isn’t as fine.
Egg whites – Make sure you use eggs that are at least couple days old after buying them. That way the proteins in the egg whites have broken down a little and are easier to whip up when making the meringue. Make sure your eggs are at room temperature before using.
To age your egg whites – this involves separating your egg whites from the yolks a day before making your macarons and storing (covered) in the fridge. The idea is that you break down the proteins in the egg whites which makes them easier to whip up when making the meringue. When separating your eggs, make sure you don’t get any yolks in the egg whites otherwise they won’t whip up properly! 
Storage – Macarons can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
Nutrition – is an approximate and is based on per macaron cookie but does not include the filling. This recipe makes about 30 sandwiched macaron cookies.
A note on measurements – this recipe is offered in weight measurements. This is in an effort to offer the most accurate way to get the best results. Cup measurements simply aren’t accurate enough for a recipe that needs precision and cup sizes differ depending on where you are in the world.

Is there a way to make my own almond flour as it is not easily available where I’m at, thanks!

Nick Makrides May 11, 2021 - 11:11 am

Yes! You can add blanched and dried almonds to a food processor and blitz it until you reach fine meal 🙂 Just make sure it’s dry and not wet when you blitz it 🙂 Hope that helps!

Love this recipe, have made it a few times, along with one of your old YouTube videos for further reference! However, question… if wanting to make double quantity, is it safe to just double the recipe? Or would you recommend making two batches?

Nick Makrides September 19, 2021 - 2:45 am

Hi Bonnie! Hmmmm. I’ve tried doubling this recipe and it rarely works. Another reason why i wouldn’t do that is because it will mean that the batter is left out for a while while you bake the trays of macarons. I personally have 20 baking trays, but most people don’t. Hope that helps! N x

Hi Nick I love all your recipes !! I’m about to macaron recipe after countless other recipes lol
I’m In Australian and atm the humidity is around 90% should I still make them 😬.??
I’ve tried other recipes that say np with humidity or no rest method but they didn’t work 😔

Nick Makrides May 28, 2022 - 7:26 am

Hi Angela! Unfortunately humidity is like kryptonite to macarons. It just causes a lot of issues when it comes to the end result.

Hi Cictoria! Unfortunately I can’t do that. This recipe, it needs to be measured in grams.
