Description

Class Experience

Students will take their baking skills to the next level by learning how to make French macarons. 
Hi there! 
My name is Mrs. Rodenbeck and I am a middle school history teacher! I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th, grade history for the past 5 years! Before that, I taught high school history. I absolutely LOVE learning about people from the past! I like understanding how people lived in different times in history. 

I studied anthropology in college. My goal as a kid was to be Indiana Jones! Archaeology and cultural anthropology are my favorite disciplines. I like to learn about what past peoples have built and how those things impact their culture. I’ve even done work for Chicago’s Field Museum since 2007. Now I work in the education department at the Field Museum with other teachers and bringing history topics into their classrooms. 

I love teaching about the American Girl books and their periods of time in history because I used to WORK at the American Girl store in Chicago. I worked there all throughout my college years. I loved American Girl when I was a kid and I loved it, even more, when I worked at the store in college! 

I also LOVE macarons and eat quite a few of them! :)
Students will need to bake their macaron shells overnight as homework. 
Ingredients Needed: 

SHELLS: 
1.5 cups of powdered sugar 
1 cup + 2 tablespoons of almond flour (MUST be almond flour) 
3 egg whites 
0.5 cups of sugar 
Food coloring 
Sprinkles 

FILLING: 
0.5 cups of unsalted butter 
1 3/4 cup of powdered sugar 
0.5 teaspoon of milk 
3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract 

DECORATIONS: 
Black and orange gel cookie decorations (in tubes) 
Halloween sprinkles (optional) 

Supplies Needed: 
Baking sheet
Electric mixer with a whisk attachment 
Spatula and mixing spoon 
2 Piping Bags with round tips 
Baking sheet 
Parchment paper (cannot be wax paper - this paper will go in the oven)
Metal/Mesh Strainer 
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Potential Hazards: Students will need to use the oven and a mixer. Additionally, macarons are made with almond flour so students will allergens need to check the ingredients from the supply list below.
