Why Macarons have Sticky Bottom Shells

As an Amazon Affiliate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Macarons can have sticky bottom shells due to a number of issues. Macarons will turn out under baked, but there are a few changes you can make to prevent your next batch of macarons from having sticky bottom shells.

Using stainless steel baking pans vs aluminum for macarons

Stainless steel baking pans can get hot spots over time. The uneven distribution of heat in older stainless steel pans can make macarons have sticky bottom shells, and will come out of the oven undercooked.

Aluminum is the best metal for conducting heat over other baking sheets like stainless steel.

Aluminum baking pans conduct heat evenly throughout the pan.

Aluminum is a light colored baking sheet; it doesn’t absorb heat like other metals, such as stainless steel.

With a lighter colored pan, you can bake your macarons for a shorter amount of time than if you used a stainless steel baking sheet.

Why Macarons have Sticky Bottom Shells

Using an oily baking pan for macarons

Macarons need to be baked on a baking sheet that is perfectly clean.

There can be no oily residue present on the baking sheet. If there is any presence of oil on the baking pan, the macarons will absorb the oil and will not turn out. The macarons will be sticky, under baked, or will not turn out at all.

If you’re having trouble removing the oily residue from your aluminum baking pan, pour very hot water on the pan, and this should remove the oil from the baking pan.

Using an oily silicone baking mat for macarons

If you’re using a silicone baking mat to line your baking sheet, make sure there is no oily residue left on the baking mat before piping your macarons.

Your macarons will absorb the oil, and will have sticky bottoms.

If you’re not able to get your silicone baking mat clean, try using a fresh sheet of parchment paper to line your baking sheet. Another option is having a separate silicone baking mat to only use for macarons.

Cut the parchment paper to fit to the pan. It’s much easier to pipe close to the edges of the baking pan if the parchment paper isn’t overhanging the edges.

Macarons are under baked

Use an oven thermometer to check the temperature of your oven before baking your macarons. Make adjustments as needed for your recipe.

If your first batch of macarons come out of the oven with sticky bottoms, try baking the macarons for 1-2 minutes more. Keep a close eye on them as they can burn very quickly. You can use a baking utensil to check the bottom of one of them while they are in the oven to check to see if they are done.

Meringue for macarons is mixed too long

If your egg whites are mixed too long for your meringue, your macarons can be hollow inside and have sticky bottoms. Try whipping your egg whites for less time to prevent this from happening. Your egg whites are finished when you can turn the mixing bowl upside down and the egg whites don’t move. Check periodically on them as you whip the meringue.

How Fine should Almond Flour be for Macarons

As an Amazon Affiliate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Almond flour needs to be sifted and very fine before using it for macarons. You can see how grainy the almond flour is before it’s been sifted.

how does a sifter work with almond flour

You can see the difference in the texture of the almond flour after it has been sifted. The texture is much finer and lighter. Almond flour needs to be crumbly and easily be rubbed with your finger tips.

How Fine should Almond Flour be for Macarons

There is a difference in how fine your almond flour is depending on which one you’re using for your recipe. You can find almond flour that specifically indicates it’s superfine. It’s best to use an almond flour that is already fine to begin with. Then you don’t have to grind the almond flour any smaller using a food processor.

To remove any clumps in your almond flour before using them for macarons, sift the almond flour right before using it. It’s easier to sift almond flour using a colander with a medium mesh, over a sifter with a fine mesh.

How Fine should Almond Flour be for Macarons

A colander can remove the large clumps that form in almond flour. You don’t need to use a fine mesh sieve in order to the the almond flour thin enough. A colander works well and is much faster than using a sifter.

Why Macarons Stick to the Silicone Baking Mat

Undercooked Macarons

Your macarons will stick to the silicone mat if they are undercooked.

Bake your macarons for 1-2 minutes longer than when using parchment paper for the macarons to be easily peeled from the silicone baking mat.

Macarons are not fully cooled

Macarons will stick to the silicone baking mat if haven’t fully cooled before trying to remove them. Let them cool for at least 20 minutes before trying to remove the macarons. Usually it’s easier to leave the macarons on the baking sheet and let the macarons cool on the silicone baking mat for at least 20 minutes. Then peel the macarons off of the silicone baking mat and fill them.

Silicone baking mat is oily

Silicone baking mats cannot have any oily residue, or particulate present on the baking mat when using them for macarons. The macarons will absorb the oil while baking, making the macarons very difficult to get off of the silicone baking mat.

To remove oily residue from the silicone baking mat, wash it with soap and water and rinse to let dry.

If the oily residue is still present, pour boiling water on the silicone baking mat and it will clean the baking mat perfectly to use for your macarons.

Why Macarons Stick to the Silicone Baking Mat

Baking pan is old

Macarons need fresh aluminum baking pans to cook well. If your baking pan is old, unfortunately the macarons will stick to silicone and even parchment paper. Macarons need the conductivity of aluminum to cook evenly and for the temperature to be evenly distributed while baking. Use a new aluminum baking pan for cooking macarons if your pans are quite well used.

Baking pan is oily

Macarons will absorb any oil that’s present on the baking pan through the silicone or parchment paper. Remove any oily residue from the pan by washing it with soap and water.

If the baking pan will not become clean after using soap and water, pour boiling water on the baking pan. The boiling water will clean the baking pan to remove any oil that is present and make it freshly clean to use for baking macarons on.

Why Macarons Stick to the Silicone Baking Mat

Painting Macarons with Food Coloring

As an Amazon Affiliate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Painting on macarons with food coloring will give your macarons some color contrast and be more eye catching.

You can paint on macarons using either powdered food coloring or gel food coloring with a couple of drops of almond extract.

In order for you to apply the food coloring to paint your macarons, you will need to use a food safe paint brush.

Macarons have delicate shells that can be damaged if pressed too hard with a paint brush. Apply the food coloring to the macaron gently, as if you were painting a picture.

Painting Macarons with Food Coloring

When you’re making up your coloring for painting on macarons, you don’t want to use too much almond extract to make your coloring. If you pour too much, the food coloring will be more like watercolor paint. The color will not go on the macaron as strong, and it will be too runny to really show up on the macaron.

Just use a little almond extract for your coloring. The color will be strong and easily painted on the macaron. The color will not run if you only use a drop or two.

Sometimes the color will dry out in your bowl, just add another drop or two of almond extract to make it liquid again.

You can begin painting your macarons after you have filled them. They will be easier to hold onto, and you won’t have to worry about the color being disturbed if you’re kind of messy when you fill your macarons.

Lay all of the filled macarons on a plate, and pick up the macaron when you’re ready to fill it.

Hold the macaron steady and you apply paint with the other hand. If you lay the macaron on a plate to paint it, you’ll still have to hold onto the macaron because it will move away when you try to apply paint. Macarons are not heavy enough to stay in place as you paint them.

For each color you want to paint your macarons, you’ll need a new bowl. You don’t want any of your colors to mix together, so it’s best to keep the food colors separate from each other.

If you’re changing colors with your paint brush, wash it out with soap and water and rinse well. Dry the paint brush with a dark towel (just in case the color runs and ruins your towel) and then you can paint your next color on your macaron.
