My Birthday Sweet Treat

I am new to the macaron obsession.  It's only been about a year.  But it was love at first bite.  I love the crispy outside and chewy inside and the burst of flavor and creamy center. They are worth every penny because I truly savor and enjoy them.  In a way that I just don't find with any other cookie.

I was too busy to get myself a little treat on my actual birthday.  But on Saturday, I popped into a local favorite, The Placid Baker, who sells a few flavors each day.  And treated myself to a lunch of four little perfect macaroons: vanilla bean, lavender, lemon and mocha.

While they were all delightful, the lemon was my favorite.  I hope to find some more fun flavors in the near future!
