The first batch are coco macaroons made with a variety of flavors which I accidentally discovered while climbing the streets of St. Jean Pie de Port, a mountainous and very touristy place in the southern part of France. The main ingredient is dessicated coconut but added with choco chips, almonds and a lot more tasty and sweet smelling stuff which I forgot. lol!
Going coastal, still in the south of France, you´ll find some delicately tasting macaroons made of ground almonds at Saint Jean de Luz. If you´re an almond fanatic, then this one´s for you. :)
The ones below came from Moulin Chocolat, a pastry shop in la Calle Alcala in Madrid. The cookie is crumbly but the filling especially the chocolate is very tasty. They reminded me of smores.
But the queen of all macaroons (for me) are those from Ladurée. It´s chewy and tasted like heaven. I swear! I highly recomend the salty butter caramel, pistacchio and citron. Just look at the photo, no explanation needed. ;)
Macaroons make fantastic desserts or nibblers for your tea. So what´s your favorite dessert? Share? ;)
