Preparation steps

1.
Oil and line a large baking sheet with baking parchment.
2.
Grind the ground almonds and icing sugar together in a food processor to a very fine powder.
3.
Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks in a very clean bowl then carefully fold in the almond and sugar mixture with the apricot syrup and food colouring.
4.
Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large plain nozzle and pipe 2.5 cm | 1" rounds onto the baking tray. Leave the uncooked macaroons to stand for 30 minutes to form a skin.
5.
Preheat the oven to 170°C (150 fan) | 325°F | gas 3.
6.
Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until crisp on the outside and still a bit chewy in the middle. Slide the greaseproof paper onto a cold work surface and leave the macaroons to cool completely.
7.
Beat the butter with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy then beat in the icing sugar a quarter at a time. Whisk in the syrup and food colouring, then continue to whisk for 2 minutes or until smooth and well whipped.
8.
Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a medium plain nozzle and pipe an even round onto half of the macaroons. Sandwich together with the other half.
