As we wrap up another week here in Denver and prepare for the beautiful weekend ahead, we would like to present you with a recipe straight from our kitchen at The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa: Brown Palace Macaroons. These macarons are perfect for a weekend treat as they are incredibly easy to prepare and still deliver amazing flavor. Check out the recipe below and enjoy!
Brown Palace Macaroons
1 lb Almond Paste
½ lb Confectioners Sugar (powdered)
½ lb Granulated Sugar
5 oz Egg Whites (lightly whipped)
Using a small mixer blend the paste, sugars and small amount of egg whites until mix is smooth and free of lumps. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add remaining egg whites. Scrape sides of bowl well. Line a cookie sheet pan with parchment paper. Using a pastry bag, pipe mix to the size of a nickel onto parchment paper. Bake in 350-degree oven until lightly browned. Remove from oven, let cool and serve.
