Basque Macarons

Macaron

Apparently there are different types of French Macarons…depending on the region.  Who knew?  Not me!  I am only familiar with the sandwiched ones, the Parisian Macaron.  These are a simple macaron, not sandwiched but surprisingly amazing without the filling.

These cookies have a full almond flavor due to the almond flour, and a wonderful texture which is both crisp and chewy.  As one of my tasters commented, “these have a wonderful crisp shell with a chewy delight in the middle”.  This cookie is quite unassuming, plain looking actually…and easy to make.  However, every one of my tasters was almost speechless to describe why they loved these so much.

They just loved them…and couldn’t stop eating them.  I think that speaks for itself. 🙂

These are a keeper!

  1. Both recipes look and sound as if you nailed them perfectly. Reading your post is making me want to make the Macarons again. So easy and so good. Right?
