Macaron versus Macaroon

Macaron (not to be confused with Macaroon) gift boxes

So, what is a Macaron? Is it the same thing as a Macaroon? Let us solve the mystery.

A Macaron (pictured here) is a brightly colored sandwich-type cookie with a filling. A Macaroon is a coconut cookie, sometimes drizzled with chocolate.

We not only sell Macarons but we also teach classes so that you can make them at home. We offer very detailed hands-on instruction in class and also provide written recipes and tips for success when making them again at home. Please contact us for details.
