Matcha Green Tea Macaroons

Matcha Green Tea Macaron Recipe

Matcha Green Tea has a slightly bitter taste but combined with a sweet filling, it is the best combination ever.

For macarons

  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (30 g)
  • ¼ cup almond flour (30 g)
  • ⅓ cup of powdered sugar (40 g)
  • 1 teaspoon matcha tea
  • To fill
  • ¼ cup of cream cheese, room temperature (50 g)
  • ½ cup icing sugar (70 g)
  • 1 teaspoon of milk

How to prepare macarons

In a bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add ½ of the sugar and with the mixer continue beating until the egg whites are stiffly beaten. Repeat with the last ½ of the sugar, beating until the whites are bright and fluffy.

Using a fine mesh strainer, sift the almond flour and icing sugar and combine them in the bowl with the egg whites.

Preheat the oven to 180˚C.

Using a pastry bag, create the macarons on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave the biscuits to rest until they are no longer wet to the touch and a skin forms on top (up to 1 hour).

When the biscuits are dry to the touch, bake them for 15 minutes.

While resting, prepare the filling by mixing the cheese, powdered sugar and milk in a bowl until smooth.

Allow the macarons to rest for 10 minutes, until cool, before filling them like sandwiches.
