Happy Macaron Day!

Today is Macaron Day, so enjoy those if you’re a fan!

I decided to learn more about them after seeing them EVERYWHERE in the last few months and my two favorite takeaways are as follows:

Lesson #1: There are macarons and then there are macaroons! They’re only similar in that they are meringue-based (egg whites) treats.

Lesson #2: They have feet! Really, when the two cookies (?) bake, they form a crumb-like skirt, seemingly one of the keys to perfecting a recipe!

Someone I know is getting started in the business, so check out The Macaron Studio. Great photos and really interesting flavor combos!

I just never really partook in any macaron-munching, so anyone want to go on an epicurious adventure with me?
