What’s So Special About Authentic French Macarons?

Authentic French Macarons are somewhat tedious to make, and require great attention to detail during the mixture, forming, and baking processes. French Macarons are made from a combination of carefully whisked egg whites, powdered sugar, and ground almonds. Natural coloring can be added to give a splash of vibrance to the confection. This mixture is used to form meringue wafers, or cookies, which are baked and then used to form a sandwich around a variety of delicious flavored fillings such as buttercream, ganache, or jam.
