Vanilla Macarons are delicious little desserts that melt in your mouth.
Servings: 24 macarons
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.
