Oh, how could I forget? Yesterday I had my first French macaron....three of them actually. Okay, I had parts of three of them. They were vanilla, raspberry, and chocolate. Mmmmmm! The "cookie" part wasn't anything like I expected. I thought they would be more like a meringue with a hard shell to it. I purchased them at a health food grocery store, and they were just fabulous! I shared part of each with my kids and husband and parents...and they were small too. I so wanted everyone to have a nibble and try them as well. Unfortunately, (for my waistline) I now like them and may have to get more in the future (only the entire macaron will be for me!).
