Matcha Green Tea Macarons

I could hardly wait for the weekend to arrive so that I could make another batch of macarons. This time using my newly acquired bag of green tea powder.
Hmmm the fresh grass smell that whiffs out when I open the foil bag…refreshing!

To make these I simply weighed out the ingredients for my macaron recipe, removed 2 tbsp of icing sugar, and added 2 tbsp of green tea powder. I also used green gel as well.

These didn’t come out as crunchy and firm as I normally get them, perhaps it was the humid weather. The shells sunk a bit and were very fragile. Maybe I shouldn’t have followed some recipe’s advice of switching the pans midway…..however the taste hasn’t been affected so that’s ok!

This only means one thing – there will be another trial next week!
