Place small heaps of the mixture on a non-stick baking sheet (this is important as the macaroons tend to stick).

Do not place the heaps too close together as the mixture will spread a little during cooking.

Stage 5 - 3 min.

If possible, spray the tops with a little water as this helps them to turn a nice golden brown as they cook.

Stage 6 - 25 min.

Bake for about 25 minutes, watching for colouration.: the macaroons should stay fairly pale, but with a golden brown edge.

Unstick the macaroons from the baking sheet while still hot, as this is easier, and leave to cool on a wire rack.
