Here are the lemon macaroons! I’ve been asked for the recipe for so long, but this time it’s done! I had to find a way to keep the macaroon from getting wet with the filling… It’s done! They are deliciously filled with a lemon cream that holds together and doesn’t give the macaroons any moisture.

Recipe for “lemon macaroons” for about thirty macaroons:

of basic macaroons
 with the lemon yellow powdered dye. Cook as directed in my recipe.

Prepare the lemon cream. Squeeze the lemons. Put the gelatin sheet in cold water to soak.

And get the zest of a lemon. Put it with the juice.
Combine egg, cornstarch and sugar in a bowl.
Add the lemon juice and place in a saucepan over low heat.

When the mixture begins to thicken and boil, remove from heat and add the wrung-out gelatin sheet. Mix well.
Add the butter cut into pieces.
Then when all the butter is incorporated (melting…) add the almond powder.

Don’t forget to let the macaroons rest for 24 hours in a cool place before eating them!
