Oh Macaron...


Move over cupcake, there’s a new sweet craze, Macarons. These french cookie sandwiches filled with creamy ganache are a pretty perfect treat and shops are popping up all over. Here are a few that have the best in my favorite cities coast to coast.

SF
Paulette in Hayes Valley
Miette in the Marina

NYC
Almondine in Brooklyn
La Maison du Chocolat in Rockefeller Center
Macaron Cafe in the Fashion District (just steps from my office;)

Also, I found a fantastic
cookbook that delves into the secrets of making perfect macarons at home.

Yes I LOVE macaroons - although I prefer to eat them as opposed to trying to make them. I love to bake but they sound so difficult!
