Raspberry Rose Macaroons are ultimate meringue cookies that are sandwiched together with rose buttercream and raspberry jam.
I have replaced the traditional recipe (which calls for egg whites) with aquafaba which is a liquid brine that we can obtain after boiling chickpeas.

Notes

  1. Make sure you weigh all of your ingredients before beginning. It’s crucial to go by weight rather than volume in this recipe.
  2. Make sure your almond flour is superfine powder and sieve it properly otherwise macarons will taste gritty.
  3. Beat your aquafaba till it peaks so that it wont spread on baking.
  4. Gently fold in almond flour and icing sugar in meringue till molten lava stage otherwise it may result in cracked or flatten macaroons. DO NOT OVERFOLD.
  5. Macaron rounds should be dry before going into the oven. That is why letting them sit at room temperature for at least 45 minutes (the longer the better) is imperative.
