Fun Fact: It is believed that the macaroon originated in Italy. Macaroon actually originates from the Italian word for “paste,” “maccarone.” Mmmm… doesn’t that sound tasty? Seriously, though, macaroons taste nothing like paste. If you have not tried one before, you definitely should.

I must admit. I haven’t eaten many macaroons in my day. But staring at these for the past 30 minutes or so has made me want one in the worst way. I don’t have any in the house so I think I will drink some Coconut Mocha Coffee and then roll out to the store later and pick some up.

  5. How often do you taste the macaroons you make when baking to make sure that they’re already in the right and perfect texture as you want?

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I am not really sure about that. You may want to go to the site where one of the recipes comes from and ask one of the people who came up with these recipes. I am sure they could offer you far more helpful advice than I can.
