These marvelous macaroons are as sweet as they are beautiful.

There is nothing quite like a macaroon. If you’ve never encountered these delicate french pastries then I suggest you try. Their fragile shells require a light hand, a lot of skill and a good deal of patience. If DIY is not really your bag, you can rest assured there are many qualified macaroon professionals turning out increasingly inventive takes on this sweet classic. A macaroon is like a blank canvas. To be called a macaroon, the dessert is only required to have a sweet filling enveloped by almond-based shells. As to the flavoring and color scheme, the possibilities and applications are endless.

The macaroon has enjoyed increasing popularity in North America over the last few years. This has led to many innovations on the part of pastry chefs and macaroon enthusiasts the world over. Everything from popcorn-inspired flavors to seasonal numbers have been created and savored.

There has never been a better time to try one, and if these marvelous macaroons are any indication, you won’t have any trouble finding one that speaks to you.
