Macarons at Madeleine's

I finally made my way to Madeleine's Bakehouse today (yes, I know I'm a slacker) and tried their macarons. Their what? I deal with food in simple terms- you know, like cookie- so just in case you're as clueless as me, check it out on Wikipedia.  THESE THINGS ARE AMAZING!!! They're $1.89 each, but you get 20% off if you get a dozen or a half-dozen. They have 6 flavors, so it was a no-brainer and a little under $10 after tax. Cookie is NOT the word for these delights- I really need to expand my vocabulary. My only complaint: THEY'RE ALL GONE ALREADY!!!


  1. When I first read this post, I thought you were talking about the tiny coconut macaroons. I love them, but you're crazy if you expect me to pay two bucks each.

    Thanks for the wiki-link, I have been edumacated now. I'll have to stop by and try them sometime.

  2. Macarons are made with almond flour (about 15 times the cost of normal flour). That is where the cost comes from. They are worth the price :)
