While I love my recipes and I know many of you do as well, I never say that any recipe is fool proof. There are SO many factors to consider– equipment (baking pans, mats/parchments, oven type, what rack you bake on), method/technique, whether or not you are REALLY following the recipe < the last one is the trickiest– because sometimes we think we’re doing something… but we lack awareness of what we’re actually doing. Use these recipes as a starting point for tweaking them to work for you. Good luck!

    This macaron recipe seriously is heaven sent! I have attempted so many other recipes and wasted tons and tons of ingredients already. Knock on wood, but this recipe really is fool-proof. It is just a matter of knowing your own equipment! Thank you so much for continuously sharing your tips & techniques! You’re the best!!! ❤️❤️❤️ If you all haven’t tried it yet, get it right this second! ?

    Lisa’s recipe is amazing! I love how it includes a calculator so you don’t have to try and get the exact grams of egg whites. You still need to play around a bit as everyone’s environment is different, but they gave me the best results of all the recipes I’ve tried in the beginning. She also has great tips on her Instagram highlights! And not to mention they taste so good. Highly recommend it!

    Love your recipe Lisa. 4 years trying different (paid) recipes, love the excel sheet. Truly heaven sent.

    This is an extremely consistent recipe AFTER you yourself play with all of the potential variables that Macarons offer. A clear, concise recipe and an AMAZING excel calculator that does the hard work for you. This recipe is 100% worth buying if you want to master French Macarons either for fun or for profit.

    True, there is no fool proof recipe, especially when it comes to macaron, believe me I’ve tried A LOT! In the years I’ve been making and experimenting macaron recipes, I thought it’s about time I tried a purchased one that’s not going to break my bank, and boy this recipe definitely did not disappoint. Great job to you Lisa and to your team ??.

    So happy about this recipe – its was a complete game changer for me! For months since first trying to make macarons, I was struggling at lot. When I finally decided to try this recipe I can confirm that everything that comes within it is SO WORTH IT. From the excel calculator to the details – without a doubt its been helpful and has upped my confidence in making these little guys. My shells have been getting better and taste-wise, I’ve always preferred this recipe’s ingredient ratio! This recipe has given me consistent results and its been almost a year since using it (also as other have mentioned, you need to also pay attention to all the variables that come with making macarons, but again this recipe does go over those and Lisa provides consistent tips on her Instagram page). It’s been a lovely experience using this! Highly recommend!

    Dear Lisa,
    This is my love letter to you and your macaron course! Just about every tip and trick there is online was provided in your comprehensive course. I think if anyone just starting off bought your course, they would save hours and hours of research time! You are so thorough but also minimal/simple in technique (does that make sense?). I love the recipe calculator. I still refer back to the course all the time for reminders and just double checking my info. The troubleshooting chart is highly useful! And of course, the macs tastes amazing. I’m so glad I made the purchase early on and it was the first introduction to my mac journey. It gave me such a good foundation to work with. Worth every penny!! This is a GEM of a course!

    Thank you! After a year of inconsistent results this truly has helped me. I was close to giving up. Your style of teaching is a great fit for me. I definitely will be taking your course as well. You have inspired me to continue following my passion and one day dive in full time.

    Best recipe out there and the calculator is genius! This is the only recipe I use and I constantly get compliments on the look and taste of my macrons! I even had a person tell me they were better than all the ones they tasted in France! Not sure about that, but he was very convincing! Lol

    I tried one other recipe before this and was getting inconsistent results. Lisa’s excel spreadsheet is so precise that no matter the size of my batch, I get perfect macs every time. They are full, the bottoms aren’t sticky and my feet are sky high. I’ve sold thousands of them over the last year and a half and have only gotten rave reviews! I’ve been asked numerous times for my recipe and I always send them here to buy it for themselves. I highly recommend making this small investment in a recipe that will serve you well long term!
