The Macaroons. A sweetness that we love but at the same time that we dare not venture to achieve.
It's too bad. With a little practice and patience, this Softness will delight young and old alike!
A hint of history: This dessert was born in the Middle Ages, in the Middle East.
It was not until the Renaissance and Catherine de Medici to taste macaroons in France. There are also different types of Macaroons depending on the country and region.
In the 19th century, the famous Macaron de Paris was born with a heart of buttercream or jam. The different colors of the shells and multiple flavors appeared during the 20th century.
