What's a macaron?

Pronounced

[ma-ka-rohn]

What are they made of?

French macarons, unlike their american equivalent, do not contain any coconut ​

The macaron traditionally consists of a ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies.

The name is derived from the Italian word macarone, maccarone or maccherone, the meringue.

Macaron perfection!

Did you know they were actually Italian?

​Macarons have been produced in the Venetian monasteries since the 8th century A.D.​

During the Renaissance, Catherine de' Medici's Italian pastry chefs made them when she brought them with her to France in 1533 upon marrying Henry II of France.
