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!
