Hazelnut Macarons- soft, hazelnutty, fudgy and very delicious! This recipe uses the Italian Meringue Method of macaron making, with an addition of cocoa powder and replacement of hazelnut flour for 50% of the almond flour in the recipe.

Number Of Ingredients 10
- 1. Mix the 158 g water and 236 g granulated sugar in a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Gently mix the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. 2. Place the probe of the thermometer into the syrup and cook until it reaches 248F degrees. (see Note 1 at the bottom).3. Remove from heat immediately when the temperature is reached.* If the syrup has crystallized, discard and start over. Use the syrup cooking time (it might take about 10-15 minutes) to sift the dry ingredients and prepare the egg whites.
- 1. Sift the 106 g of almond flour and 106 g of hazelnut flour, 30 g of cocoa powder and 212 g of powdered sugar twice into a large bowl.2. Heat 172g of egg whites in the microwave in 5-7 second intervals, mixing after each, for about 30 seconds or until the egg whites are barely warm to the touch. 3. Add 82 g of egg whites to the sifted mixture. Pour the rest of the egg whites into a grease-free bowl and add a 1 tablespoon of sugar and set aside. 4. When the syrup is at about 240F, with a sturdy wooden spoon quickly mix egg whites with the sifted mixture until paste forms.
- 1. When the syrup is at about 243F to 244F, start to whip egg whites and sugar on medium speed, getting them ready for when the syrup reaches 248F and you can pour it into the fluffy egg whites.2. Once the egg whites are foamy and the syrup is at 248F degrees, remove the syrup off the heat, increase the mixer speed to high and slowly pour the syrup into the egg whites between the whisk and the bowl. Continue whipping until the bowl is cool to the touch and the meringue has reached stiff peaks.
- 1. Fold the whipped meringue into the almond/sugar paste in 3 additions, trying to reach the "lava" stage when the batter flows off the spatula into the bowl like lava, or when the batter dropped into the bowl takes about 30 seconds to dissolve into the rest of the batter, or when you're able to draw a figure 8 with the batter falling off the whisk. Stop immediately once you reach this stage as overmixing the batter will ruin the macarons. It is better to under-fold, then over-fold.
- 1. Fill the prepared piping bag fitted with the 1/2 inch round plain tip with the macaron batter. You can drape the empty bag over a tall glass to make it easier to fill the pastry bag.
- 2. Pipe the macarons onto the prepared parchment-lined (or a Silpat, but with Silpat you will need to increase baking time) baking sheet by pressing out 1.5-inch circles about 1 inch apart.
- 3. Rap the sheet against the counter 5-10 times to remove any large bubbles. If you use a softer surface to avoid the loud noise that comes with rapping the sheet on the counter, increase the number of raps. 4. Next, use a pin or something sharp to pop any remaining bubbles that have risen to the surface of the macarons, but haven't popped.
- 1. Place into a preheated to 350F oven and immediately reduce the heat to 325F. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before removing off the parchment paper.2. Bake the rest of the macarons in the same fashion, preheating the oven to 350F each time a new baking sheet is placed in the oven.
- 1. Fill a piping bag fitted with a 1/2 inch round piping tip with the Nutella filling and pipe about a tablespoon of the filling onto the first half of the macaron shells, then top with the second cookie, matching them by size and shape. 2. Press gently to adhere.
- Place the macarons into a container fitted with a lid and refrigerate or leave at room temperature for 24 hours before eating. This allows the flavors to mend and for the macaron to reach a fudgy and soft inside.

- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Grind 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar, the hazelnuts, and cocoa in a food processor until powdery, about 3 minutes. Sift mixture through a medium mesh strainer onto a piece of parchment paper, then discard any large pieces of nuts that didn't come through the strainer.
- With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt until they hold firm but not dry peaks, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar, a tablespoon at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed; this can take up to 3 minutes. Beat for an extra 30 seconds until the peaks are firm and shiny but still not dry. Fold the nut mixture gently into the egg whites with a large rubber spatula. Transfer mixture into a large piping bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain piping tip. Pipe 32 2-inch by about 1/3-inch thick rounds, evenly spaced, on each of the prepared pans. Set aside to air dry for 30 minutes before baking.
- Meanwhile make the filling: Put chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream, with espresso powder mixed in, to a boil. Pour cream over chocolate and shake bowl gently so cream settles around the chocolate. Set mixture aside until the chocolate is soft, about 5 minutes. Whisk gently until smooth, taking care not to incorporate too many air bubbles. Cool at room temperature until set up.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Bake macaroons until set and puffed, about 18 to 20 minutes. Take care not to overcook the macaroons or they'll crack. Cool cookies for 5 minutes then gently peel from paper. Let cool completely.
- Spread 1 teaspoon of mocha filling on a cookie and sandwich 2 cookies together.

- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Put the hazelnuts, cocoa powder and 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process until the nuts are very finely ground and powdery, about 3 minutes. Sift with a medium-mesh strainer and discard any pieces of nuts that didn't pass through the strainer.
- Beat the egg whites and salt in a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium-high speed until they hold firm but not dry peaks, about 2 minutes. While beating, gradually add the remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed until the peaks are firm and shiny. Fold the nut mixture into the egg whites with a large rubber spatula until just blended. Transfer to a large piping bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tip. Pipe 32 two-inch rounds on the prepared pans. Set aside to air-dry for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Bake until the tops of the cookies are puffed and set, 18 to 20 minutes. Take care not to overcook the cookies or they will crack. Cool the cookies for 5 minutes, then gently peel from the parchment and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Meanwhile, put the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. Heat the cream to a boil in a small saucepot over medium heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate and set aside until the chocolate is soft, about 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth; let stand at room temperature until thick but still spreadable. Sandwich about 1 teaspoon of the chocolate mixture between two cookies and repeat with the remaining filling and cookies.

(Can be prepared 3 days ahead.) let stand 10 minutes at room temperature before serving.
These traditional German cookies are very easy to make and taste delicious. They are also rather light for a cookie, so you can enjoy a few more. ;) If you feel like it, try out other nuts in place of hazelnuts or maybe grated coconut.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees with rack in lower third. Place hazelnuts in a food processor; process until as fine as possible, about 1 minute. Add confectioners' sugar; process until combined, about 1 minute.
- Pass hazelnut mixture through a fine-mesh sieve. Transfer solids in sieve to food processor; grind and sift again, pressing down on clumps. Repeat until less than 2 tablespoons of solids remains in sieve.
- Whisk egg whites and granulated sugar by hand to combine. Beat on medium speed (4 on a KitchenAid) 2 minutes. Increase speed to medium-high (6) and beat 2 minutes. Then beat on high (8) 2 minutes more.
- The beaten egg whites will hold stiff, glossy peaks when you lift the whisk out of the bowl. Beat on highest speed 30 seconds.
- Add dry ingredients all at once. Fold with a spatula from bottom of bowl upward, then press flat side of spatula firmly through middle of mixture. Repeat just until batter flows like lava, 35 to 40 complete strokes.
- Rest a pastry bag fitted with a 3/8-inch round tip (Ateco #804) inside a glass. Transfer batter to bag; secure top. Dab some batter remaining in bowl onto corners of 2 heavy baking sheets; line with parchment.
- With piping tip 1/2 inch above sheet, pipe batter into a 3/4-inch round, then swirl tip off to one side. Repeat, spacing rounds 1 inch apart. Tap sheets firmly against counter 2 or 3 times to release air bubbles.
- Filling: Heat heavy cream in a saucepan until bubbles begin to form. Add chocolate and butter; stir to combine. Stir in chocolate-hazelnut spread. Let cool until thick and spreadable.
- Bake 1 sheet at a time, rotating halfway through, until risen and just set, 13 minutes. Let cool. Pipe or spread filling on flat sides of half of cookies; top with remaining half. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
