Ok people, if you haven’t already decided on your new years’ resolutions, I have one for you. Learn the difference between Macaroon and Macaron. They are two totally different biscuits. A macaron is not a macaroon pronounced or spelled wrong, they are different!
A macaron is a sweet almond based biscuit made of two halves and sandwiched together with a ganache or icing. The halves are crunchy on the outside and soft, chewy and full of flavour on the inside. Adriano Zumbo made this popular in Australia on MasterChef a few years ago.
A macaroon is a biscuit or cookie made of shredded coconut, egg white and sugar, they look like a little pyramid of shredded coconut when cooked.
This is a macaron.
