Step Aside Cupcakes, Macarons Are Taking Over
Macarons have slowly taken over the dessert world and we can see why.
These mini sandwich-like cookies are made from two meringue-based crisp shells filled with jam or cream of practically any flavor you can think of; although I do recommend chocolate!
These delicious cookies are not only light and airy, but also aesthetically pleasing, which makes them great for Instagram pictures! Now let's dive into some history of macarons.
It is rumored that the macaron cookie originated in Italy and was brought to France in 1533 by a woman who married the King of France, Henri II. The recipe at the time was quite simple: almond flour, sugar and egg whites.
The macaron we know and crave today was not created until the 1890's by La Maison Laduree. The second cousin of La Maison Laduree began adding a filling inside the cookie and forever changed the way macarons were made to this day.
Fast forward to 2014, macarons became the most popular dessert in the U.S! If you have not hopped on the macaron craze and would like to try some, look no further! Try Duverger's handmade French macarons made with organic ingredients and natural flavors.
Claire Becker, the chef of Duverger's Macarons, made it a goal to create the perfect combination of texture and flavor: two slightly crispy shells and a lush filling, making every single bite a pure moment of delight.
One bite and you'll be hooked!
