How to Make Raspberry Macarons with White Chocolate Buttercream
Preheat your oven to 300 F degrees or 150 C degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a mixing bowl beat in the egg whites alongside with the granulated sugar and cream of tartar. Beat until stiff peaks form. It will take you about 10 minutes.
In another bowl, mix almond flour and icing sugar altogether.
In the egg white mixture, add in the concentrated raspberry syrup and almond flour with icing sugar. Stir slowly and gently with the help of a spatula. Make sure you do not over mix the batter and under mix it as well. It needs to drop like a lava consistency. Transfer the macaron batter in a pastry bag with a round tip and pipe out 1-inch rounds about an inch apart from another. Tap the baking sheet on the counter a few times so all of the air bubbles will disappear.
Let them rest and dry for about 30-40 minutes, and when ready, pop them in the oven. Bake them for about 15-20 minutes. Let them cool completely.
To make the filling in a mixing bowl with a whisk attachment, beat the butter and powdered sugar for about 2 minutes. Melt the white chocolate and cooled add them in the butter mixture. Add lemon juice and mix well. Transfer the buttercream filling into a piping bag and fill every second shell of the macarons. Garnish them with fresh raspberries and spring of mint.
