In the meantime add first 110 g of egg white to mixing bowl.

Add other egg white to almond flour/confectioners sugar mixture. Do not mix.

Whip egg white till it is quite foamy.

Separate into bowls to add coloring.

Fold color gel into batter.

Pipe 1.5-2" discs onto silpat or parchment lined sheet pan.

Rest the macarons for about 20 min. They should not feel sticky on top before going into the oven. Be sure to give them enough spacing, unlike we did with ours on the bottom left.

Bake in oven at 284F (140C) for about 25 min, until nice shell has formed.
