I got this cute little gift from The Cookie Jar some time ago… and no, it’s not cookies.
According to The Cookie Jar owner Rae Corpuz it contains her latest product… French Macarons! Rae describes a French Macaron as a moist confectionery cookie made from egg whites, sugar, and almond powder with buttercream or ganache filling.
I was delighted to find eight colorful French Macarons when I opened the box. There were two of each flavor and I got four flavors: Vanilla Buttercream, Lemon, Pistachio, and Carrot Cake (I think). The flavors not included here are Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Red Velvet. A box of eight like this one costs P225, while a box of twenty costs P520.
I would describe French Macarons as light and airy creme-filled meringue sandwiches. The lemon flavored one is citrusy and rather refreshing.
The Pistachio French Macaron has a unique texture due to tiny bits of pistachio nuts incorporated into the meringue. It’s not overly sweet too. 🙂
