Love green tea.
These are green tea macarons with green tea white chocolate ganache filling.
Sounds decadent eh?
I used Sprinke Bake’s macaron recipe and added 1 tsp of matcha powder – the natural green color of matcha is so pretty. Also changed the baking technique this time – baked the macs at 285 degrees F for 10 minutes (rotating half way through) and put a baking sheet on the rack above to prevent the tops from browning.
This technique seemed to work well for my oven. The only problem was that the shells turned out a bit weaker this time… not sure if this was attributed to my egg whites, ingredient ratio, or what. They still tasted delicious though =]
As for the green tea white chocolate ganache: combine one square of white chocolate, approx. 1 tbsp of sour cream and 1/2 tsp green tea powder. Melt these three ingredients together over a water bath and spoon onto macs once cool.
I always find white chocolate to be too sweet, but I really liked how the tanginess of the sour cream balanced out the sweetness.
