Do you dare to prepare them? Doing it is very simple and only you will need some electric rods and a bowl for it. Also baking paper and it is that in addition to serving so that the macaroons do not stick to the tray when baked, later cut into squares is traditionally used to store them.

The recipe

Mostachones de Utrera, a traditional sweet
Utrera macarons are a traditional Andalusian sweet. Some small biscuits, ideal to have in the afternoon with a coffee.

Recipe type: Dessert
Rations: 16

Preparation time: 
Cooking time: 
Total time: 

  • 3 eggs
  • 130 g. of sugar
  • 130 g. wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. We separate the whites of the yolks and preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. We mount the whites to the point of snow, adding the sugar little by little once they begin to rise.
  3. Once assembled, we add the yolks without letting beat with the rods.
  4. Then gradually incorporate the flour with the cinnamon, sifted and with enveloping movements.
  5. Place baking paper on the tray and with the help of a few spoons or a pastry bag, we have mounds of dough, approximately 6/8 per tray that do not initially extend more than about 8 centimeters in diameter. They will grow a little more in the oven, so it is convenient to leave space between them so that they do not stick.
  6. We take them to the oven and we cook at 180ºC with heat up and down for 14 minutes until we see that the edges begin to brown slightly.
  7. Then we take them out we cut the paper and we are placing the Utrera macaroons on a rack so that they finish cooling.
