I Love Macarons by Hisako Ogita

A trip to Paris must include a visit to Laduree, famous for their impossibly delicious macaron cookies. I’ve been trying to make these for a while, and I finally cracked the code with the help of I Love Macarons. Written by a Japanese pastry chef, this charming little book offers foolproof recipes for the creation of perfect macarons. Americans tend to think of macaroons as soft coconut cookies. French macarons couldn’t be more different.  They are very delicate meringue cookies that are slightly crispy, slightly chewy, and very tender. Made of egg whites, sugar and almond paste, with a variety of fillings, they melt in your mouth, creating the most intoxicating taste sensation.
