Happy Rainy Wednesday to you all!
I wanted to share with you all my latest obsession…
these little gems!
Aren’t they just the most delightful thing you have ever laid your eyes on!
These are called Macarons. Not to be confused with Macaroons.
Yes, the missing O makes all the difference.
These are Macaroons. They are delicious little cookies that are made with coconut and sometimes covered with chocolate.
These lovers are Macarons. A meringue based confection that is filled with buttercream or jam.
Aren’t just gorgeous!
I must have some but seeing as Richmond isn’t über progressive as New York or some other places getting my hands on these bad boys is very difficult. You can order them online and have them shipped to you but they come with a very hefty price tag. $25 for a dozen and that’s not even including the dreaded shipping charges.
In my endless search for these beautiful cookies I found a women that makes them in Richmond per special order and the minimum is a dozen.
I guess I am just going to have to throw a party in order to get my paws on these little guys.
The word on the street is that Macarons are the new cupcake…
What are your thoughts on that?
