Ingredients for 12 biscuits

For the macaroons:

  • 2 egg whites (about 80g)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 100g erythritol powder
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • food colouring

For the filling:

  • 120g soft butter
  • 50g erythritol powder
  • 1 tsp bourbon vanilla (or the inside of 1 vanilla pod)

 

Preparation:

Heat the oven to 130 degrees Celsius. Beat the egg whites with some salt until firm. Gradually add the erythritol powder. Fold in the ground almonds and baking powder. Add the food colouring if desired. With a piping bag and a round nozzle, pipe 24 circles with 3cm diameter onto the baking tray. Leave enough room between them. Let them rest for 20minutes before baking. Bake for about 15 minutes in a preheated oven on the middle shelf. For the filling, mix the softened butter with the erythritol powder and vanilla. Put the filling in a piping bag with a round nozzle and pipe in the middle on the flat size of each macaroon and put another one on top. Chill in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
