In this way, can I bake macarons without parchment paper?
It seems you do not have to use parchment paper, but many argue that it is the best way to ensure the macaron doesn't stick. Another option that people offer instead of parchment paper are called Silpats, or silicon mats, that can be baked.
Additionally, can you use aluminum foil instead of parchment paper for macarons? Consider alternatives to parchment paper to ensure your macaroons do not stick to the baking sheets while baking. Tear sheets of aluminum foil or rice paper. The aluminum foil must be greased with shortening to keep the macaroons from sticking.
Secondly, why do my macarons stick to the parchment paper?
Too high oven temperature is culprit for many popular problems, like hollow macarons, cracked top, and/or browned shells. If bottom of the macarons stick to the parchment paper, or silicone mat, it means they're not cooked long enough, or you haven't cooled the cookies enough before removing.
Do you have to use parchment paper for meringues?
Non-stick parchment or silicone oven liners are essential – use plain greaseproof paper or a bog-standard baking tray and you're likely to be scraping crumbled meringue mess off them. If they're stuck to non-stick baking parchment, then they just need to cook for a bit longer.
