Notice that the macaroons are placed well apart on the baking tray.  See how the tray is lined with parchment paper? This is so that you can remove them easily after baking.

These have just come out of the oven and notice that they're only just brown.  They're delicate and burn easily so take care that they're not in the oven for too long.

Easy Recipes Tips

How to separate egg whites from yolk:

Get two containers at the ready - we use two coffee cups. Have them sitting side by side.

Crack an egg in half gently and immediately hold it UPRIGHT with the round side of the egg pointing down. You can remove the pointy end of the egg.

separate egg whites from egg yolk

Allow the whites to run free into the cup.  The yolk will sit in the half of the shell.

When the egg white has run out, tip the yolk into the other cup.

Repeat for the second egg.

Save the yolks to add to an omelet.
