Macarons

Mmm, mmm, mmmm.... Macarons are a delectible French pastry.

 Store selling a varied selection of these little beauties!

The perfect macaron is hard on the outside, like an eggshell, but if a teeny tiny bit of pressure is given, it cracks, revealing the light, fluffy, moist insides.











Macarons come in variety of flavors are are popular in France, the UK and Japan. It's best to find somewhere that makes them in-house instead of getting them shipped in. It keeps the flavor fresh and the textures light and crunchy on the outsides.

My favorites are the black currant ones, which come with a layer of currant jelly in the center, ginger and pistachio.

There are so many varieties that one is bound to find something that they like. Some come with fillings, like jelly, mousse or ganache in the center, which adds another dimension to the taste and texture of these wonderful little concoctions.

Have them with coffee or tea!
