1Sift the icing sugar and the previously mixed almond powder.
2Make the macaron mixture: beat the egg whites with the sugar. Add the green pistachio liquid food colouring.
3Using a spatula, mix the sugar-almond mixture with the beaten egg whites. Mix slowly from bottom to top, to knock back the dough. Pour the mixture into a pastry bag.4Place your macaron shells on a baking tray, covered with a sheet of parchment paper.5Sprinkle the shells with a little Christmas tea.6Allow to dry for 30 minutes, then bake at 140°C for 15 minutes7Make the ganache: in a saucepan, bring the cream to the boil with the fleur de sel. Pour the mixture on the tea and let it all infuse for 3 minutes.8Filter, then remove the now-flavoured cream. Pour it 3 times on the almond chocolate, then mix altogether like a mayonnaise.9In a saucepan, heat up the mixture to 45°C. Fold in the butter and mix.10Add the previously toasted crushed almonds at 160°C for 10 minutes.11Pour the mixture on a plate and then let it cool down.12Place this creamy filling on half of the shells; assemble your filled macarons with the remaining shells.Our chef's tip : You can also infuse the tea in cold cream for 12 hours in order to extract only the flavours and no bitterness.
