Coffee Macarons With Caramel Filling are perfect combination of coffee and salted caramel that  make the best of the best kind of dessert.


  • 150 grams almond flour

  • 140 grams sifted confectioner’s sugar

  • 120 grams white granulated sugar

  • 110 grams egg whites, brought to room temperature

  • 40 grams water

  • 10 grams instant coffee powder (pulse through food processor)

  • For Filling:
  • 7 ounces dulce de leche

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened at room temperature


  • Premeasure ingredients. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Draw circles on the back of the paper, if desired, about 1-inch in diameter for smaller cookies.
  • Combine almond flour, confectioner’s sugar and coffee in a large bowl. Add 55 grams of egg whites on top, do not stir!
  • Place remaining 55 grams of egg whites into a stand mixer bowl.
  • Place water and granulated sugar into a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar syrup reaches 240F. When sugar syrup is almost ready, turn on mixer to high speed and whisk egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly pour in sugar syrup, whisking egg whites on high speed; whisk for about 5 minutes until meringue is thick and glossy.
  • Fold meringue into prepared flour and egg whites. Batter needs to be a specific consistency.
  • Transfer into a large pastry bag tipped with a round tip. Pipe onto prepared parchment paper. Tap pan several times, hard against the counter, to release any trapped air bubbles. Let cookies stand at room temperature for 1 HOUR!! This step is very important. The cookies need to form a thin film on the outside which will prevent them from cracking. If desired, place about 2 tablespoons of instant coffee into a fine mesh strainer and sift coffee over cookies to give them more texture; do this after they set and before baking them.
  • Preheat oven to 285-300F. I bake mine at 290F for 12 minutes. E
  • Remove cookies from oven and let them cool completely before taking them off the parchment paper.
  • In bowl, whisk together softened butter and dulce de leche. Place into pastry bag. Turn half of the cookies over face down and pipe generous amount of filling onto the center.
