Salted Caramel Macarons by Jean Michel Raynaud of Baroque, The Rocks, Sydney.

This macaron recipe was on SBS earlier but somehow they deleted it! Wonder why? The method is very brief, so you need to have made macarons before to understand how to do it.
Salted Caramel Macarons (Jean Michel Raynaud)
Macaron shells:
600g TPT mixture (50% blanched almonds and 50% icing sugar)
240g egg whites
300g sugar
75g water
Salted caramel:
250g fresh cream
350g sugar
350g butter
10g fleur de sel
It will take around 20 minutes to mix and pipe the macarons, and 30 minutes to cook them.
The caramel takes about the same amount of time. Once the macarons are cool, fill them up with the caramel mixture.
Please note: You cannot eat them straight out of the oven; they need to sit in the fridge overnight at least, depending on the fillings. The salt needs to dissolve slowly in the toffee to get the balance of flavours right, and the shells of the macarons need to reabsorb humidity from both the filling and the fridge.
