Since they are simply sandwiched with peanut cream as is, there is no need to make ganache and the work process is minimal🧑. 🍳
The crunchy texture, the aroma of peanuts and the gentle sweetness will fill your mouth with delight♥️

2.Beat the egg whites with a hand mixer.
3.When the mixture becomes white and frothy, add granulated sugar in two or three additions.
4.Add a little bit of the mixture from (1.) above to the meringue and mix until the meringue is smooth and creamy.
5.Mix about 20 times, pressing the dough against the bottom and sides of the bowl to break up the meringue bubbles.

7.When finished squeezing, lightly tap the baking sheet from the bottom to release air from the dough.
Preheat the oven to 200℃.

When cooled, remove from the cookie sheet and finish with a handsome peanut cream sandwich.
Please store the macarons you made in the refrigerator ✨.
Points for making peanut macarons
Before making the meringue, check the hand mixer or bowl for oil or water.
Use fresh eggs as much as possible.
When making the meringue, I recommend using a hand mixer on high speed from the beginning to beat the meringue. (I was able to make meringue by whisking continuously for about 3 minutes while adding granulated sugar. ☺️)
I recommend using a *squeeze bag and a mouthpiece to squeeze out the macaroon dough nicely.

Hello! This is Jibby, a staff member of Suzuichi Shoten. ☺️
The reason why I made peanut macarons was because I was so motivated to make cute sweets for Valentine’s Day this year ✊…so I made them with my daughter.
(I could only think of cute sweets -> macarons).
This was my first time making macarons, but it was easier than I thought it would be 💡.
By the way, I made these macaroons as a gift. I thought I was going to taste them, but I ate many of them. LOL!
I hope you will also wrap them cutely and give them to your loved ones and friends… (I think it is also cute to wrap each macaroon one by one ♡)
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. ♥️
