Over the holidays I was surprised with a small box of them, shown below, made from the bakery Laduree. Laduree is a Parisian tea salon that began as a bakery in 1862 in Paris, France, and has many locations all over the world. They have two locations in New York City, one in Soho that has a restaurant, and the other location is a shop on the upper east side of manhattan, that sells macarons and pastries. To read more about Laduree, you can click HERE.
Take a look at these beauties:
Macarons are available in many different stores and bakeries such as Laduree, Whole Foods, Amazon, and Dana's Bakery in New York City. I have had the macarons from Dana's Bakery and they taste really good and they just melt in your mouth. The macarons from Dana's Bakery taste just as good as the ones from Laduree. I have seen them also available in Trader Joe's and Costco. Macarons are such a popular trend right now that you don't want to miss.
A box of macarons would also make the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.
I would love to try and bake them sometime, but I think it's a very involved process, so I'd rather just buy them to enjoy eating instead. Have you ever had a macaron before or baked your own?
PLEASE NOTE: I would also like to thank everyone who commented and gave me advice on my blog post that I did about what is going on with Google Friend Connect and my blogging frustration. You can read about that blog post HERE. THANKS so much for all of your comments, advice, and helpful hints, as I really appreciate your support and blogging friendship. The blogging community is great. I have decided not to use google plus at this time, and to have my followers follow me by Bloglovin, email, and social media.
Thanks for stopping by and see all you at the end of the week.
