Gluten-Free Chocolate Hazelnut Macarons

For the macarons:
- 1 cup powdered sugar

- In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until they begin to foam.
- Slowly add the 5 tablespoons granulated sugar to the eggs, beating on medium-high speed, until egg whites form stiff peaks. Approximately 2-3 minutes.
- Gently fold the sifted powdered sugar, cocoa, almond flour mixture into the egg mixture with a rubber spatula.
- Fill a pastry bag (or sturdy ziplock bag) with batter. Cut the tip off the bag.
- Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Pipe batter into 1-inch circles, spaced at least 1 inch apart. Tap baking sheets on the counter a few times, to bring air bubbles to the surface.

- Add sifted powdered sugar and beat on medium high for about 3-5 minutes. Start with the slow speed, and as the powdered sugar incorporates, increase the speed to medium high. Stop the mixer in between the creaming process to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Cream until the butter stiffens a little and increases in volume.
