French macaron recipe is quite is easy. Most of the time, people who don’t succeed with macarons don’t have the suitable material.
So before you try to cook macarons, be sure to have all the proper tools.
It is THE tool to “macaronner” (It means to mix in a specific way the macaron, go to my recipe to have the explanations.)
A blender 30$
To make the shells of your macarons smooth, the mixture of almond flour / powdered sugar must be very fine. So you’ll need to blend them before using.
Electrical scale 12,50$
When it comes to pastry you have to be very precise! Even more with macarons, which are very sensitives beauties!
A strainer 8$
After blending your mix of powdered sugar and almond flour, you’ll have to sift them together so you take off all the big part of almond remaining.
Hand mixer 12$
To beat the eggs white in snow. You can use a robot if you ave one. But a hand mixer (this is what I use) is enough and much more cheaper than a kitchenaid.
Pastry bags 13,50$ for 100 units
The pastry bags will both serve to dress your macarons on the plate and to garnish them with their filling.
With the pastry bags you’ll need the pastry tips. For macarons shells, use a tips between 0,3 and 0,4 inches. You can buy the pastry tips directly on Myfrenchrecipe.com. We chose these one because they are professional and perfect for macarons.

2 Baking sheets 20$
Where you will put your silicon baking mat.
Imagining that you have nothing to cook (which I doubt ;)) you’ll have to have this material if you want to be sure to mage good and nice macarons.
