We all know them but macaroons are difficult to make, aren't they? Not if you follow this recipe to get perfect macaroons every time.

There are various ways to make macaroons and this is just one of them. If you don't like the recipe why not try the multicoloured macaroons or strawberry macaroons recipe.
I don't see why this recipe calls for dried egg powder when for most people it's simpler to use fresh egg whites. Also, turning the macaroons over? Very unorthodox and unnecessary - they're so fragile halfway through cooking that I think it's better to follow a recipe that doesn't suggest this step.
There are macaroon recipes on the site that don't use dried egg powder so I'd recommend you use one of those recipes. If you like this recipe you can buy dried egg white powder – SuperCook do sachets if it – from Sainsbury's, Tesco or online: http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/tesco-price-comparison/Home_Baking/SuperCook_Egg_White_Powder_6_per_pack_48g.html
The obvious question - dried egg white powder - is it essential? If so, where do you get it? If not, will some more fresh egg white do?
