Oh la la

These make me smile...

I love everything about them. Their pretty colors, inherent French-ness + most of all, their lovely texture and delicious flavors. 

What is a French macaron? Essentially it's two almond meringue cookies sandwiched with a flavored creme filling. Usually they come in chocolate, pistachio, orange, strawberry or raspberry flavors - but the possibilities are endless.

In Atlanta they can be found at Maison Robert - a superb French chocolatier on the north side of town, but there are lots of places on-line to order them.  

And to give credit where it's due... Thanks Mom!
