What is so special about macaron?
The perfect macaron is a balanced delicacy. It’s a sweet meringue, a delicate duet of two cookies that share a filling of almonds, buttercream, ganache, jams, powdered sugar, and egg whites. The shells are crispy from the outside, and chewy and soft from this inside, so moist that it dissolves in your mouth.
