Preparation steps


For the macarons: Preheat a convection oven to 120°C (approximately 250°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Finely grind the almonds in a blender. In a bowl, beat the egg whites with the lemon juice until stiff peaks form. Continue beating, while adding the powdered sugar 1 spoonful at a time, until very stiff and glossy. Gently fold the almonds and matcha into the egg white mixture. Place in a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe large dots on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until dried on the outside, but soft on the inside, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, remove parchment paper from the baking sheet and cool completely. 


For the filling: Chop the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl. Set over a pot of simmer water until melted. In a bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Whisk the butter into the chocolate. Once the chocolate has cooled, gently fold into the cream mixture along with the pistachios.

For assembling: Spread the filling on half the macarons. Sandwich with the remaining macarons.
