Macaroons are the baked but fluffy looking cookies and we usually think of coconut macaroons when we see them. But macarons or French macaroons? Those are the colorful sandwich confections made popular by Fauchon, Pierre Hermé and Ladurée.
I’m not crazy about eating them (although some are pretty delicious). I love looking at them…

I’ve had excellent ones made by Financier (New York), Maison du Chocolat (New York), 15ème Patisserie (Taipei), Payard (it was in New York and it’s closed), and Saisons (Taipei). If you’ve had macarons, do you have a favorite flavor? a favorite place to buy them?
