Pink Macarons with Vanilla Cream recipe, brought to you by Weight Watchers and MiNDFOOD.

Pink Macarons with Vanilla Cream

½ cup (80g) icing sugar, sifted, plus 2 tbs extra for vanilla cream

¼ cup (30g) almond meal, sifted

1 egg white

1 tbs caster sugar

½ tsp red food colouring

50g Weight Watchers Canola Spread

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 Lightly spray 2 baking trays with oil and line with baking paper.

2 Place ½ cup (80g) icing sugar and almond meal in a medium bowl and mix until well combined. Using electric beaters, beat egg white in a small, clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add caster sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating well after each addition until sugar has dissolved. Add food colouring and beat until evenly distributed. Gently fold meringue into almond mixture until just combined.

3 Spoon macaron mixture into a piping bag f itted with a 1cm plain nozzle. Pipe sixteen 3cm-wide circles, about 3cm apart, onto prepared trays. Set macarons aside, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced.

4 Bake macarons for 10–12 minutes or until just crisp. Cool on trays.

5 Meanwhile, using electric beaters, beat spread, extra icing sugar and vanilla in a small bowl until pale and creamy. Sandwich macarons with the vanilla cream. Serve.
