French Macaroons (Macarons)

A friend of mine recently sent me a small dessert cake I had never heard of, a French Macaroon, which is also known as a Macaron here. Not to be confused with a macaroon made with coconut.

Confused yet? So was I. Here is a visual:

After going through a tasting I am very surprised I have never seen them before. They have a thin crisp outer layer with a soft mix of “creamy dough” and flavor on the inside.  Almost like the consistency of cookie dough. Either way they seem great for events like weddings or showers. They have 12 different flavors to choose from, caramel and cappuccino were my favorite.

If you want to check them out head over to the Macaron store and grab a sample pack to test the flavors. The shipping is quick and they come well packed.
