Homemade orange Macarons

What you need:
2 egg whites
0,25dl sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
2.5dl confectioners sugar
1.5dl almond flour 
A pinch of salt

For the filling:
1 egg
1dl orange juice
60g sugar
10g Maizena flour 
the zest from one orange

How you make them: 

Step 1: mix the confectioners sugar with the
almond flour and sift it into a bowl.

Step 2: whisk the egg whites together with a salt until it's become a hard foam. 
Then add the sugar and the food coloring and keep mixing it until the meringue has become blank. 

Step 3: Carefully add the almond mixture to the    meringue. It should look the same as before just a bit more fluid. Make sure not to mix it to hard so that the egg whites don't loose their consistency. 

Step 4: Spread baking sheets out on a pan and pipe the batter in even sizes. 
Let them sit out in room temperature for an hour and then put them in the oven at 150 degrees Celsius for about 12         minutes. Let them cool down before you touch them. 

How you make the filling: 

Step 1: Mix the sugar and the Maizena in a bowl. Add the orange juice. Whisk the egg and add it to the mixture. Add the zest. 

Step 2: pour the mixture into a sauce pan and let it cook on medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes. Until it gets the consistency of jam. Put it in a bowl and let it cool down in room temperature. 

Step 3: Spread the filling on top of a macaron half and then put another one on top that is the same size. Then you're done!
