Assorted Macarons

Assorted Macarons

These are the BEST macarons I’ve ever had. That is what kept running through my head as I tasted one macaron after another. The texture of the cookies was perfect – delicate and slightly moist, and the fillings were amazing – smooth, creamy, and packed with flavor. I don’t like macarons filled with a whipped cream-like substance because they are oddly flavorless and leave a strange buttery feeling in my mouth, and I don’t like those that have a thicker paste-like substance because they don’t complement the delicate quality of the cookies. THESE were perfect.
My friend and I got a sampler of all of the flavors, which include earl grey tea, caramel, caribbean chocolate, coconut, Colombian coffee, lemon, Madagascar vanilla, Sicilian pistachio, sweet wedding almond, passionfruit, rose, violet cassis, and hazelnut chocolate. They were all delicious, but my favorites were lemon and earl grey tea. The shop even offers a special soft-serve ice cream special topped with lemon and earl grey tea macarons – sort of a tea time special. Next time I’m in town, I’m going to have to try that concoction.
