For the Macarons

  • Sift the almond flour with the powdered sugar 2 times. 
  • Using a stand mixer with whisk attachment, whisk the egg whites at high speed until they begin to foam. 
  • Once the whites start to resemble shaving foam add the sugar and keep whisking until soft peaks form. 
  • Add the pinch of salt and vanilla bean paste. Continue to whisk until stiff peaks form.
  • In three additions gently fold in the almond flour mixture using a spatula. As each addition of the dry ingredients is incorporated, add the next bit. 
  • Transfer to a pastry bag and pipe rounds of batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  • Squeeze batter to an inch in diameter. Let the tray sit for 30 minutes.
  • Bake the macarons for 16 to 18 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

For the Filling

  • Put the butter, vanilla extract, milk and powdered sugar, in a mixer and mix well.
  • Once the macaron shells are cool and using a pastry spatula, spread the vanilla buttercream over half of the shells. 
  • Top with the other half of shells.
