  • Whip egg whites and salt in a stand mixer on medium-high speed until frothy. Gradually beat in granulated sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes.

  • Fold one-third of the confectioners' sugar mixture into beaten whites. Fold in remaining confectioners' sugar mixture and the food coloring. Transfer to a large piping bag (use half the batter so bag is not overfilled) and snip off a 1/2-inch opening.

  • Pipe batter in 1 1/4-inch circles onto parchment paper. Let stand at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, at 350° for 15 minutes. Cool completely on paper on wire racks.

Ganache
  • Place chopped chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, heat cream just until steaming. Pour over chocolate and stir until smooth. Refrigerate until good spreading consistency.
