    So I’ve been attempting to make macrons 4 four times. Your recipe was the
    4th time and I’m SO GLAD YOU SHARED, because I almost cried tears when I
    pulled them out and they were perfect. The feels are real. I almost gave up
    because the ingredients got expensive and the cookies ending up not being
    edible/presentable anyways ) : THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! +Entertaining With Beth

    Macarons are on my bucket list! I’m a brand new follower sitting in the
    audience who just heard you speak at #GBCatl. Great speech and I can’t wait
    to browse your videos.

    Thank you so much for this video! I made macarons today and they would have
    been perfect has the mixture not been so thick due to large chunks of
    almond in it. I have two sifters. One has holes that are too small and the
    other has holes too large. I chose the larger holed sifter because the
    almonds were not sifting through the holes and instead clumped together
    making a delcious almond butter, which may be my next project. ;D I’ve been
    craving PB&J, which is funny, so almond butter and raspberry preserves
    shaped in little rilakummas sounds like heaven!

    Hi, i have read from the comments below that confection sugar is the same
    as powdered sugar AND they are icing sugar too(correct me if i’m wrong). I
    live in Australia and they only sell icing sugar for topping and baking.
    So, I was wondering if I should use the icing sugar(baking) for the
    macaroons and use the icing sugar(topping) for the filling? Thank you :)

    Will it go bad if I make it the night before and send it out to my bf
    overnight shipment? Bc we lived 2 states apart.

    I wonder what would happen of someone used cocoa powder instead of almond

    Hi Beth – a few questions for you:
    – I made my first bath for 20 minutes at 300 degrees on the bottom shelf.
    Used parchment paper. Totally burnt.
    – Second batch – 10 minutes, 300 degrees, parchment paper, top shelf…
    – Third batch – 10 minutes, 250 degrees, silicone mat, top shelf… perfect.

    Do you think it’s my oven? My guess is yes. They tasted great but did not
    keep their pink color, either.

    And one more question – the filling turned out not very blended. It tasted
    too buttery even though I followed directions… did I not whip the butter
    enough? Maybe more butter?

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Will powdered sugar work for the confectioners sugar ? And will almond
    flour work good ?

  11. Savanna Phung

    Some people put the meringue into the almond flour and sugar instead of
    doing it the other way around. I’ve always done it the other way and I was
    wondering if it really mattered?

    Hi Beth! I’ve made your macaron recipe 3 times already and each time they
    come out hollow inside and stick a bit to the paper. They come out looking
    perfect though, smooth and with feet. I’ve tried reducing the time,
    thinking that maybe they were overcooked but they came out underbaked,
    hollow and stuck to the paper. Then I tried reducing the oven temperature
    by 25 degrees. I thought this time for sure they would come out perfect but
    they were still hollow inside and stuck to the paper! I dont know what to
    do! It’s driving me crazy! Help!

    Hi Beth! My oven’s temperature only progresses in 20s so I can only have
    140C or 160C which temperature should I use and for how long?

  14. Eunice Chen

    I love this recipe and I’m trying it tomorrow for a dessert project for
    school and I’m only 13 and I bake a lot but I’m nervous if this would be a
    challenge for me or not but I am looking forward to it and is it ok if I
    use a hand mixer and about how many times should I fold the batter ? I’m
    looking forward for your comment thx

    I’ve made macarons before and they’ve turned out amaxing ! But suddenly my
    macarons started to crack and not grow feet could it be because of the
    weather? I’ve waited 1 hour and they’re still not dry? Someone please help

  16. I'm just making this so I can comment

    Beth , can I use regular flour ???????? I don’t have almond flour and if so
    self rising or all purpose ?

  17. Lilah Smolev

    So i made these and it was hard on the outside and wet on the inside. What
    do i do?

  18. Edahani Wan Yahya

    Hi Beth, this is amazing! I can’t wait to try these out! I just have a
    little question, if I plan to use the macarons tomorrow, can I make the
    shells tonight, keep them in an airtight container and fill in the
    buttercream tomorrow? Do I have to keep them in the fridge?

  19. Alex Shvartsman

    Awesome as usual, you never disappoint!

    why do you mix olive oil and butter as your cooking fat?

    New subscriber here. This is the first recipe I tried like this where I
    made my own sauce. I didn’t have any white wine or vegetable stock. And I
    used Chicken thighs instead. I deboned the thighs, and used the bones to
    make my own chicken stock, which I used to make the sauce at the end.
    Turned out fabulous! Keep making these awesome videos, Chef John.

    for Giggidygiggidy12, who does not understand the concept of linguistics,

    “Just what is piccata?
    Adding to the confusion about its origin is its definition. The translation
    of the word piccata from Italian to English is complex, because it is a
    derivative of several words, each having more than one meaning.

    It is easier to define in culinary terms. In “The Dictionary of Italian
    Wine and Food” and “The Food Lover’s Companion,” piccata is defined as a
    thin escalope of veal. Lemon juice is not even mentioned. However, when the
    words veal or chicken are added in front of piccata, it becomes a classic
    Italian (or is it Italian American?) dish with lemon, broth and/or wine and
    butter. Capers, chopped Italian parsley, shallots and garlic are common
    additions.” – from the SF Gate

    I was reading the recipe on your site and it calls for 1 tbs of salt mixed
    in with the flour and 1 tsp of pepper to 1 cup of flour?

  23. Robbz

    I have done at least 30 of your recipes and this was the only one that I
    have tried so far that was a strike out for me. The chicken and sauce was a
    bit bland, the wife and kids thought so too. I followed the recipe to the T
    as always. All that said, your recipes are hands down the best, any time I
    am feeling the itch to cook something new, I go to your blog/channel every

    putting chicken in eggs is like bathing a mother in her dead children, you
    sir are twisted.

  25. Jim Griffin

    Chef John, I’ve made this at least thirty times, using chicken tenders.
    I’m making it again tonight.
