Talk about love at first bite! From the moment a macaron’s crisp meringue crunch gives way to a smooth, delectable filling, you may forget all other cookies exist.

These colorful French confections can be tricky to make, but after you master techniques from meringue making to macaronage, you’ll love creating your own scrumptious macarons at home. We will share the secrets for incorporating seasonal flavors, piping with precision, and even achieving the perfect pied (foot). Plus, we’ll explore fillings like flavored buttercreams and ganaches so you can create your own tasty variations for the holidays. When you present these spectacular treats to friends and family, they’re sure to say “Ooh la la!” (We will be serving a light meal to serve along with the macarons).
