First it was fro-yo, then it was cupcakes, now it’s macaroons! Bakeries have been baking up French macaroons to keep up with the changing fads. This famous, fu-fu bakery has 3 locations Yountville, Las Vegas and New York. It’s definitely become a destination amongst tourists in either of these cities.
The soft chewy sandwich cookies come in a variety of flavors ranging from classic vanilla to green tea to chocolate mint. K went to Vegas on a trip with the boys recently and brought home a box of macaroons as a souvenir.
The box contained 6 different flavors of macaroons: strawberry, chocolate mint, lemon, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. All were delicious, especially the chocolate mint and coffee. French macaroons are completely different than the classic coconut macaroon. These French macaroons are made of almond paste and meringue, creating a soft, chewy consistency. The cookies are sandwiched together using either a cream or butter. We actually nursed the macaroons for about 4 days and they were still delicious. Can’t wait to go to NY to pick up some more!
