This is an excellent recipe for those with a sweet tooth who like an extra bit of zing and tang! I've been experimenting with various fruity macaroon flavours and grapefruit marmalade really hits the spot! The bitter but zesty tang from the grapefruit helps balance off the sweetness of the macaroon shell, making this treat rather refreshing and not too sweet.

- 3 large egg whites (room temperature)
- 65 superfine sugar
