  13. Take a piping bag with round nozzle of 1 cm size..
  14. Pour the prepared batter to the piping bag..
  15. Pipe on the baking sheet to make small round cookies. Keep little gap between each cookie..
  16. Tap the baking tray several times to release any air bubbles from the cookies..
  17. Keep the tray aside at room temperature for 30-40 minutes or until the top of the cookies become dry to touch..
  18. Preheat oven at 150 degree C for 10 minutes..
  19. Bake the macarons in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes at 150 degee C..
  20. Keep the macarons in the oven after done for 15 minutes to cool them inside the oven..

  26. Whip again to make the frosting stif and fluffy..
  27. Place the frosting in piping bag. I used the same piping bag(cleaned) which I used for macarons..
  28. Here is the baked macarons which are cooled completely. They should be smooth on the top and a ruffled circumference, which is called as crown of macaron..
  29. Now pipe the frosting on the back side of a macaron and cover with another macaron and press lightly..
  30. Make all the macaron sandwiches following the previous step. Beautiful and delicious Christmas special macarons are ready to enjoy now..
