  • ETAPE 1

    For the macaroons: Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius.

  • ETAPE 2

    Blitz the ground almonds and icing sugar in a blender to ensure that you have a very fine, lump-free powder.

  • ETAPE 3

    Whisk the egg whites and the caster sugar until you have a smooth, shiny mixture.

  • ETAPE 4

    Gently fold the icing sugar and ground almonds into the eggs whites, mix thoroughly. The mixture should be smooth, shiny and slightly elastic.

  • ETAPE 5

    Use a piping bag to pipe the macarons on to a lined baking tray. Leave to rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes.

  • ETAPE 6

    Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.

  • ETAPE 7

    For the cream filling: Heat the cream with the vanilla.

  • ETAPE 8

    Break the white chocolate in to pieces and add to the warm cream. Mix well and add the olive oil. Chill the mixture.

  • ETAPE 9

    Cover one macaroon with the ganache and then use a second macaroon to seal.
