If you are planning on throwing a French election viewing party when voters go to the polls in a few days, you’re going to want to make these show-stopping blueberry lemon macarons.
Macarons are the Frenchest of French desserts. Light, delicate, sweet and pretty, they make the perfect small treat for a party.
French pastry chef Pierre Hermé summed up their perfection when he described how these tiny dessert cookies simulate all of the body’s senses: “The macarons, though only a few grams, agitate our senses. The eyes have already devoured them. Fingers skim their surface, the flavors are gently smelled. When their fine crunchy shell is crushed, the ears are excited by the sound. Then the mouth experiences a delicate grace…”
Though only just a few grams, these macarons will make your party the most chic, stylish and, of course, delicious.
