Who cares how you spell delicious?

I was very excited to read that today was National Macaroon Day!

My first thought was to pull out this gorgeous photo  —

macaroons3But I was very confused.

These are French macarons — two light cookies made of egg whites and almond meal with a sweet filling of just about anything. I mean, you have to love that rainbow of colors and flavors.
Coconut MacaroonsNo, these are macaroons — not a cookie at all because it turns out they contain no flour. They do have a lot of coconut (and sometimes chocolate drizzled over top), and they are yummy.

I am not typically one for cakes and cookies, but I do love macarons and macaroons….so I will celebrate both today.

Sue me.
