I've fallen in love with French macaroons. I had my first real one a couple of years ago when my Husband's cousin, Gil, brought some for me when he came for vacation from France.
They were SO good!
Later we heard about a local bakery where the owner had extensive training from some of the top pastry chefs in Paris. My dear Husband gave me some for Christmas that year. I cut each one in half and froze them so I could make them last longer. He then bought me some for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, my Birthday and Christmas this past year. Shhh..don't tell, I was hoping to get some for Valentine's day this past week but....hmmm....no such luck. I may just have to sneak over and pick up my own this week.
Enjoy these beautiful pictures of macaroons!
Ladurée are suppose to be the best of the best!
I may have to make a stop on my way home from work, I'll keep you posted!!
