French Chocolate Macarons

Мacarons (Macarons au chocolat) – elegant french cookie made with almond flour. There are hundreds of different fillings, but the chocolate ganache is the most popular. This recipe is simple enough to make, but they sometimes crack or have imperfect “feet”. Don’t worry they’re still delicious, and don’t give up, only practice will make them flawless.

Instructions
Almond cookies
  1. Mix almond flour and powdered sugar in food processor (40-50 seconds).
  2. Add cacao powder to almond mixture and pass through a fine sieve.
  3. Add a pinch of salt to egg whites and beat until foamy.
  4. Slowly add sugar and beat until firm peaks form.
  5. Fold the dry mixture into the meringue, keep folding the batter until it reaches a honey-like consistency.
  6. Transfer the batter to the pastry bag.
  7. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. To make all macarons look the same size, print out a 2.5 cm macaron template, place under parchment paper and trace the outlines. You can also use a silicone mat.
  8. Holding the bag vertically and close to the baking sheet, pipe circles. Tap the baking sheet a few times on the counter to release any air bubbles, and to make them look round. Let them sit at room temperature for 30-45 minutes, until skin forms on the shells.
  9. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 12-13 minutes (one sheet at a time). Each oven temperature is different so keep an eye on them. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet before removing them. Pair the cookies up according to size.
Chocolate ganache
  1. Add heavy cream to a small saucepan and heat on high heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips. Allow to stand for 1 minute to soften the chocolate.
  2. Stir briskly until smooth.
  3. Add the sour cream and stir again.
  4. Transfer ganache to the pastry bag or small ziplock bag. Allow to cool for about 2 hours at room temperature or 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  5. Pipe the ganache filling in the middle of one shell (about 1 tsp).
  6. Sandwich it with empty shell. Store them in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours before serving. They'll taste even better next day. 😉
