While on holiday in California, we had the opportunity to stop at Paulette, a wonderful little bakery dedicated to French macarons. That's all they bake--just macarons!
I have always wanted to try these beautiful, petite confections. And I have to say, walking into the shop was like walking into a candy store for a little kid.
The gorgeous colors of the macarons all in a row, side by side, just made me grin from ear to ear.
For me, It was very hard to choose what flavors to bring home to my family. Flavors such as chocolate, pistachio, coconut, caramel, rasberry, passion fruit, vanilla, earl grey, rose, violet...
Oh my!!! The stress of it all! How does an indecisive girl decide???
She brings home one of each. And multiples of favorite flavors!
Just look at all of them lined up in the box. And they taste as beautiful as they look. They have a subtle crunch with the first bite, but then, they have a delicateness in both texture and flavor. Not too sweet---just lovely!
