The Macaron Craze!

I’m sure you’ve seen and heard and maybe even tasted  this sweet bite sized French confection that comes in all shades called macaroon macarons. You say macaroons and I say macaron, but in actual fact there is a difference because the macaroon is usually mistaken as the  macaron.  Many people  have adopted the French spelling of macaron to distinguish the two items in the English language. However, this has caused confusion over the correct spelling. Some recipes exclude the use of macaroon to refer to this French confection while others think that they are synonymous.

Theses little babies are almost like a plague with everyone wanting to taste them!

In Paris, the Ladurée chain of pastry shops has been known for its highly popular macarons and did you know that in France, McDonalds sells macarons in their McCafe’s? Wouldn’t you wish they were easily accesible in North American McDonald’s restaurants too?
