Awww the beautiful French Macaron (not to be confused with a macaroon).Two perfect little puffs with delicious cream sandwiched in between. Could anything be more heavenly (aside from a nice piece of chocolate cake warm from the oven) or more beautiful! I love the French macarons! So much prettiness packed into a tiny little sweet! I am not surprised in the least that they have become superstars amongst the pastry world and are popping up in the most unexpected places!
The cutest of all the cookies and the most versatile! Long used for tea parties, wedding favors and precious little treats for any elegant dessert table are now making grand appearances on cakes! I am familiar with the “macaron tower” which can be very elegant on it’s own let alone when paired with a flurry of desserts
