Sarah Abitan Recipe By
  • Cooking and Prep: 2 h 50 m
  • Serves: 4
  • Contains:

Yields 40 macarons.

Ingredients (9)

Chocolate Ganache

Almond Powder Mixture

Egg White Mixture

Start Cooking

Prepare the Cookies

  1. Mix the almond powder and confectioner’s sugar together. Add the first egg white and mix well.

  2. In a saucepan, combine water and sugar, and let the mixture come to 116°C (241°F).

  3. In a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat remaining egg whites until stiff peaks form, then lower the mixer speed and gradually add your hot sugar syrup.

  4. Once the syrup is all poured in, return the mixer to maximum speed until the mixer bowl is warm. If adding food coloring, add here. 

  5. With a rubber spatula, fold in the almond powder mixture in three parts, adding a little at a time so as not to deflate the egg whites.

  6. Transfer your macaron mixture to a large piping bag, and pipe small circles onto a baking sheet lined with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper.

  7. Bake for 18 minutes in oven preheated to 125°C (257°F). Let cool.

Prepare the Ganache

  1. Heat soy milk over a medium flame, stirring frequently. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

  2. Pour a third of the soy milk over the chocolate at a time, gently moving the bowl to let the milk melt the chocolate. Stir gently to avoid adding air into the ganache, and add the remaining soy milk.

  3. Cover with plastic wrap placed directly onto the surface of the ganache. Let set in the fridge for about two hours.

Finish

  1. Fill a piping bag with the ganache and pipe onto cooled macaron shells.

Variation:

You can also fill with fruit jam.

    French Macarons with Chocolate Ganache

    Convection Oven Setting

    Hi. I successfully made macarons using your recipe for several months but it's been several months since I've made them and it seems my Mac Mojo is a bit off. Question one, what temperature in celsius do you recommend for a home convection oven? Also, do you have this recipe written for ingredients weighed in grams? Thank you!

    The recipe says to preheat the oven to 125 Celsius. We do not have the recipe converted into grams but Google has a converter that you can convert any measurement into grams.

    At first glance I would say you need the flour not the powder. I am curious if anyone else will weigh in on this.

    My friend who has a macaron business said that she uses almond flour, but be sure not to use almond meal. I wonder if each company calls it something else.

    If you live in Israel, try Health Food stores, they tend to carry gluten free products, which include almond flour, as Chaia mentions, be sure it is flour and not meal. You could also try Better and Different, as they deal with this type of product. (Any one dealing with gluten free flour mixes should have this as well.
