You have likely seen these colorful, little sandwich cookies showing up everywhere. They areas delicious as they are cute, and there is a good reason why people are willing to spend money on these pricey beauties.
They are not to be confused with macaroon cookies that are made with coconut. Theses are made with almond flour and egg whites and a filling that can range from sweet to somewhat savory.
The shells and fillings are colored to compliment the flavoring.
The most famous macaron bakery is Laudre in Paris. If you are in the US and would like to order a few. I recommend Sucre in New Orleans shopsucre.com.
Once you’ve had these, you may want to try to make your own versions. Sucre has a video to show you how shopsucre.com/sweettalk/sucre-french-macaroons
