Indulge like the French by whipping up a batch of macarons! Whether you’re seeking a fancy after-school treat for the kids or a pretty dessert for summer entertaining, we’re sharing three recipes from Mia Öhrn’s new book, Macarons, Cupcakes & Cake Pops, that are sure to satisfy. Best of all, while macarons may look like tough cookies to crack, you really don’t have to be a pro pastry chef to make them. (Shh … we won’t tell if you won’t!)
Chocolate Macarons with Salted Caramel
A little salt in sweet cookies is often the secret ingredient that makes them so heavenly good.
Macaron Lollipops with Strawberry Ganache
A crispy, sweet treat — that you can enjoy on a stick!
Black currants give a fantastic color and much-needed tartness to the filling. A seasonal treat in the past, these days you can find frozen black currants year-round in most well-stocked grocery stores.
