  17. How do you make th peppermint buttercream?

  18. Hi I just tried making this, but when I poured the hot sugar into the stand mixer with the egg whites, it turned into a liquid. It was more like a pour batter than the stiff peaks that were supposed to form. I’ve never made macarons with heated sugar, do you think I’d get good results if I just added the sugar at room temperature? If not, please help me figure out what went wrong! I’d love to successfully make these for my cookie party this Sunday! Thank you

    1. Hi Becky,

      Macaron are tricky cookies and even the best macaron maker has some batches that blow up. In your case, did you slowly drizzle in the hot sugar into the already frothy whipped egg whites…? If you poured it in at once I can see how it may turn into a liquid. The reason you slowly drizzle the hot sugar in as it doesn’t cook the eggs immediately. Another potential problem could have been a tiny bit of egg yellow was in the mix. Anytime fat is introduced in making a egg meringue will cause a batter to be liquid. One trick for egg whites is to separate and leave them for a day to thicken slightly. Also a 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tarter while mixing the egg whites pre adding the sugar will help stabilize the egg whites. This trick is particularly helpful on humid days. Hope that helps!
