These lovely French macarons are crunchy on the outside and melting on the inside. They are filled with a delicious layer of ganache.

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. In a non-stick frypan, toast the almond meal 3-4 minutes, stirring. Let cool.

  4. Fill a piping bag with the mixture and make little round piles on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Tap the tray to remove air bubbles. Let rest 15-30 minutes.
