No, not macaroons. Macarons- the deliciously adorable cookies. You see them in decora items and lolita prints all the time, but a lot of people have never gotten to try them, and have no idea what they are, other than cute. And of course, there is the mix-up with those gross coconut cookies.
A macaron is a crispy cookie made with almond flour and sandwiched around a filling of some sort. You can make them in all sorts of different colours and flavours. My favorites are chocolate, strawberry, and coffee, but I've also seen pistachio, blueberry, and mint chocolate.
