French Macarons with Chocolate Ganache


Yields 40 macarons.


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 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.


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


You can also fill with fruit jam.
