CHOCOLATE MACARONS WITH ORANGE GANACHE

2011-11-11



Chocolate Macarons with Orange Ganache image

Egg whites vary in size, and the quantity of whites used in a meringue affects its texture. When making these cookies, it's best to use a liquid measuring cup to measure the whites. You'll want to chill the cookies overnight to get the perfect balance of crisp and chewy.

Yield Makes about 36

Number Of Ingredients 16

Ingredients:

  • Cookies:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups slivered almonds
  • 3 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons egg whites (from about 3 large eggs), room temperature, whisked to loosen
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Ganache:
  • 3 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 61% cacao), finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Gold dust (optional)
  • Ingredient info: Gold dust is available at specialty foods stores and lusterdust.com.

Steps:

  • For cookies:
  • Arrange racks in lower and upper thirds of oven; preheat to 325°F. Line 3 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper. Pulse 1 cup powdered sugar and almonds in a food processor until nuts are very finely ground (but not to a paste), 60-90 seconds. Add cocoa powder and remaining 1 cup powdered sugar; process to blend well. Sift mixture through a medium-mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard larger almond pieces remaining in strainer (if more than 1 tablespoon remains, pulse nuts again in processor and re-sift).
  • Using an electric mixer, beat 1/3 cup egg whites in a medium bowl on medium speed until white and frothy, about 1 minute. With mixer on medium-low speed, gradually add sugar by tablespoonfuls. Increase speed to medium-high; beat until firm peaks form.
  • Stir in remaining 3 tablespoons egg whites. Fold meringue into dry ingredients in 2 additions, mixing well between additions.
  • Spoon meringue into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4" tip. (Alternatively, spoon into a plastic freezer bag, then cut 1/4" off a corner of bag.) Twist top of bag and pipe quarter size rounds onto 2 of the 3 prepared baking sheets, spacing 1" apart. Let stand until tops appear dry, about 10 minutes.
  • Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through baking, until puffed and dry, about 16 minutes. Slide cookies on parchment onto a wire rack. Let cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter on third baking sheet.
  • For ganache:
  • Place chocolate and butter in a medium bowl. Bring cream just to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; stir in orange zest, cloves, allspice, and salt. Pour hot cream mixture over chocolate and butter; whisk until smooth. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes.
  • Spoon ganache into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4" tip. (Alternatively, spoon into a plastic freezer bag, then cut 1/4" off a corner of bag.) Twist top of bag and pipe about 1 teaspoon ganache onto flat side of 1 cookie, leaving 1/4"-1/8" plain border. Top with a second cookie, flat side down. Repeat with the remaining cookies and ganache. Brush tops with gold dust, if desired. Layer in an airtight container between sheets of parchment paper and refrigerate overnight. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep chilled. Let return to room temperature before serving.

useful as a filling, a frosting, or a glaze. once refrigerated its the consistancy of peanut butter, it can be whipped also. it should be noted that adjusting the amount of chocolate to cream will produce a firmer, or softer ganache. if you dont like orange, leave it out or experiment with other flavours.

  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. You may want to trace 1-1/2" circles spaced a couple inches apart on the back of each side of parchment paper as a guide for piping macaron shells later.
  • Sift the almond flour, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder through a fine mesh sieve, discarding any pieces of almond meal that are too large to go through. Sift a second time to make sure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and light, then set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the egg whites on medium speed until foamy, about 1 minute. Gradually add the granulated sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, while continuing to whisk the egg whites and waiting 20 seconds or so between each addition.
  • Once all the sugar is added, continue to beat the egg whites on medium to medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. The egg whites should create a thick, fluffy meringue that holds it's shape when you stop the mixer and lift the beaters out. If the peaks don't hold their shape well, continue to beat a bit longer, but be careful not to mix at too high of a speed or for too long, which can cause the meringue to break.
