You ask what is a macaron. Americans think coconut, but not so, these little gems. They are made with egg whites, very strong flavors and lots of patience. I have never tried making them and really do not have much desire to try. However, a blogger friend of mine, Cathy at Wives with Knives has perfected the procedure to making beautiful macarons. I hope you will check her blog here to find out how they are made.
Sealed with a kiss!!!
