Macaron Shells:

Oreo Buttercream:

Instructions

Macaron Shells:

  • Line baking sheet with a silpat mat or parchment.*
  • Place the almond flour, powdered sugar, and Oreo cookie crumbs in a food processor. Process until just beginning to clump. Sift and discard any bits that won't pass through the sifter. Set aside.
  • Whip the egg whites until they're the consistency of a loose foam, add in cream of tartar. Continue whipping while slowly adding caster sugar. Whip to a stiff meringue.
  • Fold the dry mixture into the meringue.**
  • Pour the batter into a piping bag fitted with the 1A tip.
  • Pipe the macarons onto your baking sheet. Sprinkle with Oreo cookie crumbs if desired.
  • When all your macarons are piped, whack the baking sheet on the counter at least 3 times to get rid of any air bubbles.***
  • Let the macarons dry at room temperature until dry to the touch. Approx 1 hour. DO NOT skip this step.
  • Once dry, bake macarons in a preheated 300°F oven until they stick just slightly to the pans. This can be anywhere from 10-20mins depending on your oven and how crowded the macarons are on the pan.
  • Let cookies cool completely before removing from pans.

Oreo Buttercream:

  • Cream Oreo filling and butter until smooth, pale, and fluffy. Add in powdered sugar and Oreo cookie crumbs and mix until well combined.

Assembly:

  • Pair macaron shells up by size, pipe buttercream into the center, sandwich the cookies, and twist together.
  • Allow macarons to mature at least 24 hours in the fridge. They are best 2-3 days after making them.

Notes

*I create a parchment template using a 11/2" cookie cutter to create circles and place it under my silpat mat.
**You will need to do a LOT of folds to get the batter to the proper consistency. You're looking for it to be smooth and shiny and have some movement. If you lift some up with a spatula, it should pour in a steady stream and settle into the remaining batter. DO NOT overmix.
*** Do not be shy with the whacking! Recipe adapted from Indulge with Mimi.
