These Matilda Macarons are dedicated to Roald Dahl fans ♥ As a child, I was not a big fan of books and reading. Meanwhile, my older sister is a huge fan and she has cupboards filled with books. I remember the first few books I read belonged to her, and one of them was Matilda.

"Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true. At age five-and-a-half she's knocking off double-digit multiplication problems and blitz-reading Dickens." (Source: GoodReads) Oh and she's also a huge fan of books too!

Looking back, I'm glad my parents urged me to pick up reading, because I've been drawn in ever since. Roald Dahl's books are timeless, and I can already foresee my child reading his books in the future. They are always magical, always touching, and always full of important life lessons.

Hope you like this tutorial on how to make Matilda macarons! It was fun trying to recreate the book cover drawing in the form of macarons. I even made some books to match the theme. Will definitely explore this style of macaron art in the future!

Directions
[For Macaron Shells]
1. Make the meringue. In a bowl, beat the egg whites on low speed using an electric mixer until it is white and frothy (approximately 1 minute). Gradually add the sugar 1/4 at a time. When the first addition of sugar has completely dissolved (approximately 1 minute later), increase the mixer speed to medium and add until all the sugar has been incorporated. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form. [Basic Macaron Tutorial Video]
2. Sift the almond flour and icing sugar to the meringue.
3. Begin macaronage. Using a spatula, start the macaronage process by folding and lightly scraping the top of the batter. Continue till the ingredients just start to combine.
4. Then, split the batter and continue to macaronage process, until you get a molten-like mixture and drips down like a ribbon when lifted. Transfer to piping bags.
