Mix the broyage with 900g of icing sugar.
Whip up the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
Gently fold in half of the icing sugar and tartaric acid into the egg whites until it has the consistency of a biscuit Careful not to make the mixture too frothy; it must be firm enough to be piped
Pipe small amounts of the mixture - depending on the size you'd like the macarons to be - onto some baking paper or a baking tray. Bake them for 10 - 12 minutes in the oven at about 170°C.
