however this treat is like heaven and so well deserved on a boring/grumpy day
or when you find yourself in need of some spoiling.
So your wondering now. Here it is : Macarons.
Sweet as heaven sinful as hell ……
The macaron’s origin isn’t clear, but it may have been brought to France from
Italy as early as 1533 by Catherine di Medici and her pastry chefs.
It is a sweet confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar,
almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring.
Macarons can be found in a wide variety of flavors that range from the traditional
(raspberry, chocolate) to the new (truffle, green matcha tea). The fillings can range from jams, ganache, or buttercream.
