Bonjour, Macaroon!

February 22, 2016


Move over cupcake{s} les macaroons have entered le maison. The past two times I have visited New York City, I have stopped in & sampled a few of Laduree's Macaroons in SOHO.

Social media is a big macaroon gathering scene for these petite cookies. For those of you who are unaware of what a actual macaroon is well...it's a French origin light cookie made with sugar, egg, & typically contains coconut or almond extract--the pistachio flavor is pretty good too.

Really, there are all kinds of bakeries that make these sugary treats, but Laduree is the most famous. Laduree opened it's doors in 1862 by Louie Ernest Laduree at Route No. 16 Royal, Paris, France.

The Laduree brand & company have survived years,--no, decades in the dessert business. Now they are more popular than ever before--really, I had to wait in a line spilling outside of the SOHO shop last December.


So, if a fancy little French bakery isn't around your corner or NYC is too far of a commute; I've found a few macaroon recipes on Pinterest that are well, rather divine.

If you're in the NYC area here are a few Laduree locals:
  • 398 W Broadway, NY
  • 864 Madison Ave, NY 

Well, hopefully, this post leaves you feeling a little fancy & fancying a macaroon or deux

  1. Ah, I remember the time that my mom and I tried out a macaron recipe! Surprisingly enough, they turned out wonderfully (although nothing matches up with Laudree)!
