French Macarons – a Deliciously Light Temptation
There has been a lot of debate about the origins of the macaron. It is predominantly a French confection, although it is thought to have come to France by Italian pastry chefs in the 1530’s during the rein of King Henry II of France.
But it wasn’t until about 300 years later that macarons began to be made with two light meringues sandwiching jams, spices liqueurs, and other fillings.
At Dreamin’ Desserts we start with two almond meringue discs made from finely ground almonds, sugar and egg whites, which are then filled with a lovely light filling. Macarons are available in a multitude of flavors.
Yes, this is a gluten free pleasure!
When you bite into one of our French macarons the light crunchy almond meringue outer shell gives way to soft delicate buttercream, jam or chocolate ganache fillings.
