    Thanks a lot for the recepie, It would be great if you can tell me its 220 C or 220 F. Generally we make french macaroon at 375-400 F for 7-12 minutes [ depends on altitude and the type of oven ]. Anyhow , I will expriment this recepie as it will being back my memories from old Thootukudi 🙂

    Dear Madam,

    I tried the recipe with the same proportions. now when baking I preheated my oven to 220c before I started whipping the ggs. I piped it in the sheet and baked for 20 minutes or so. It got quite burnt and not only that completely flat. why does this happen and what to do ?? I would really like to try this wonderful recipe

    I got good code shape in parchment paper, when baked went flat, hope will find out how to get a cone shape. Instead of lemon juice also can use tartar cream, ( most of american grocery stores have that in spices section). 1/2 teaspoon for 2 eggs

    Thank you Sumitha…I’ve been searching for this recipe for ages. The macaroons came out quite well. I did not have a lemon, so I used 1/8 tsp of cream of tartar instead. Is the oven temperature supposed to be 220 degrees F or 220 degrees C? I set it at 220F and had to leave the macaroons in the oven for 1hr and 15 mins. Thx again for the recipe 🙂

    i tried exactly the same proc but after baking the final product was sticking to the sheet. the outer part is very crisp, it broke and the lower part sticked to the sheet and didnt come out. inside was bit gummy though i ate it picking the pieces

    where did i go wrong?

      Care,When did u preheated the oven??.before starting the Egg whipping process r after .'coz no longer the whipped macaroon cream should be kept outside in the air.With no time it should be kept inside the preheated oven.I just preheated the oven for about 10- 15 minutes meanwhile carrying the whipping process simultaneouslly.Hope this will work..

      Thanks!!  to Sumitha for this recepie. Macaroons came out well & the shape did hold out well (nice pointy cones). 'Care' I had somewhat similar problem too, I just left it a little longer in the oven. Even after that it still was a little sticky ( I was impatient & i tested one ) but let it completly cool & it came right off the foil like i said nice pointy crispy macaroons. The key is to let it cool off completely. Thanks to Sumitha again !!!
