Almond flour chocolate macaroon recipe

These were gone in a flash-so yummy
On a recent trip to the store my daughter spied colorful macaroons in the dessert section.  She wanted to try chocolate flavored, so I decided to search for a recipe using almond flour.  I just used a simple filling without the chocolate ganache which was really good.  If you use almond meal it will have more of a nutty texture and almond flour will be smoother.

Recipe from Chow:

For the macarons:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour or almond meal
  • 3 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 3 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • Pinch cream of tartar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the ganache filling:

  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/4 stick), at room temperature and cut into cubes
