Macaroon have become a total phenomenon. They have become the trendy dessert, right with cake pops! My (C) neighbor recently made some and brought a few over for my family to try. While nothing beats Laduree, these were pretty darn good. We had lemon ones. My mother recently ordered this book from Amazon that my neighbor used.
[aside: there seems to be some debate over the spelling: "macaroon vs. macaron" They are indeed two different things, but I have been seeing it both ways. If anyone knows for sure, let us know.]
