I confess that I have a real sweet tooth here. My sweet tooth truly extends to baked goods, especially to a variety of pastries, such as macarons.
I have also admitted here that I am a huge Disney World fan.
Well in Epcot, I happen to love visiting the many different countries, especially France.
Because I love French pastries, especially once again macarons.
Something about these little pieces of French pastry heaven sends me to my happy place.
So, I recently found a delectable recipe for macarons that I could resist from the likes of Villa Azur‘s Executive Chef Erwin Mallet.
Did you know that May 31st is National Macaron Day?
So this is a great way to celebrate with this yummy and scrumptious macaron recipe share.
Plus, the colors in this one could also be a wonderful Valentine’s Day treat for your Valentine!
And I promise you that this recipe will also not disappoint if you too are a macaron lover.
