Classic French Macaron

  • 200 grams Powdered Sugar (1 ½ Cups)
  • 115 grams Almond Flour (1 Cup)
  • 90 grams Egg Whites (3)
  • 8 grams Egg White Powder (1 Tablespoon)
  • 30 Grams Powdered Sugar ¼ Cup
  • Rainbow Sprinkles

Whipped White Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 ½ Cups White Chocolate Chopped


Prepare the Classic French Macaron Batter

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat
  • In the bowl of a food processor combine the almond flour (115 grams) and the powdered sugar (200 grams) and pulse for one minute or until all is combined and smooth
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the egg white and egg white powder and whisk on high speed until the egg whites are soft peaks
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and sift the almond flour and powderd sugar mixture over the top of the meringue and gently fold the meringue until smooth and you can make ribbons with the batter, but do not overmix
  • Transfer the batter into a piping bag and pipe 1.5 inch rounds about 2 inches apart on the lined baking sheets
  • Add sprinkles to the top of each piped cookie let the macarons sit on the baking sheet for 20-30 minutes to dry out before baking (this is very important...do not skip this step)
  • Bake for 11-12 minutes, turning the baking sheet half way through
  • Remove the macarons from the oven and allow them to cool completely for 20 minutes before filling

Prepare The White Chocolate Ganache Filling

  • In a small saucepan bring the heavy cream to a simmer and then remove the saucepan from the heat
  • Add the white chocolate pieces to the sauce pan and slowly whisk until the smooth and creamy
  • Pour the white chocolate ganache into a small bowl or container and refrigerate until it thickens and becomes a paste consistancy
  • Once the white chocolate ganache is cooled and thick, transfer the ganache to a mixing bowl with a whisk attachment and whisk on high speed for 4-5 minutes or until the ganache become thick, fluffy and smooth

Assemble Funfetti French Macarons

  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, flip half of the macaron shells over to have the flat side up
  • Using a piping bag with star tip (#18) pipe the Whipped White Chocolate Ganache to fill the base of half of the macaron shells
  • Using the remaining macaron shells, sandwich the macarons together
  • Refrigerate for 10-20 minutes to allow the filling to set and place on a serving platter and enjoy (if you are not serving immediately, macarons can stay in the refrigerator but remove them about 10 minutes before you are ready to serve them)


  • For a more exact measurement I like to weigh my ingredients using the metric system and this cookie is worth taking the time to do that.
  • Use a silpat with the macaron template, this will help you get each cookie to be the same size and they come off much easier than parchment paper
  • Do not skip the food processing and sifting stage for the dry ingredients. This will make your cookies smooth and shiny.
