French Macarons {a tasting}

by Megan on January 13, 2010

Even though I made Vanilla Macarons last week, I’d never tasted the authentic Parisian cookie. Until then I was simply in love with a cookie I’d never met. So today Jacob drove an hour to Cecilia’s Pastries to get real French macarons for us to sample so we could know for sure what they are supposed to taste like.

They are amazing. Dreamy. Magical. Light. Pretty.

chocolate + vanilla + coffee

Now when I make macarons again (and I plan on trying chocolate this time) I know what they are supposed to be like.

Thanks to Cecilia, Jacob, France and our mutual love of food.

I’m glad you both enjoyed my macarons.

If you ever have questions about making macarons, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to talk to you about them.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. Your macarons are the most delicious.

I just might take you up on your offer to help. Can’t wait to stop by when you’re back at the farmer’s market.

What a guy!!! I don’t know if I’ve had a macaron either…now I’ll have to have a tasting out here too! I’m sure yours will be fantabulous. 🙂
