I recently bought Carly a French macaron cookbook, because that's her favorite cookie.
We both realized that there's an English "macaroon" that refers to the coconut cookie. While the French spell it with one "o". Macarons are a sweet meringue cookie made from egg whites, icing sugar, superfine sugar and almond flour.
It's name is derived from an Italian word "maccarone" or "maccherone". French macarons are commonly filled with butter cream and jam.
You can use food coloring, sprinkles or edible glitter to make these delicate irresistible cookies.
We made Strawberries & Cream Macarons. Making the cookies step-by-step are time consuming but well worth it. We garnished them with edible pink glitter.
Now you can have the taste of Paris in your Kitchen...
