The French macaron is the height of luxury desserts, after all making a macaron from scratch is a tedious and time-consuming process. A macaron is a meringue based dessert which needs eggs, sugar, aloud flour and food colouring to prepare.
The macron in the Renaissance was just a humble cookie but today it is the height of finesse and decadence. It is sandwiched between layers of buttercream frosting, jam, ganache or whipped cream. And the cookie itself is dyed into pastel hues. And there are so many customisations and variations of this dessert that we curated an entire list.
