Favorite Macaroon/Macaron Recipes

It’s National Macaroon Day! Although this particular day doesn’t seem to have deep importance in the life of a macaroon, we’re celebrating anyway with a round-up of some irresistible macaroon recipes. We’re also including one for the French Macaron, for more experienced or adventurous bakers. Enjoy!

Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons

Perhaps the easiest recipe in the books, this Coconut Macaroon Recipe from Once Upon a Chef gives you the choice to add a chocolate bottom or not. You can also drizzle the chocolate on top of the finished macaroons if preferred.

Coconut-Apricot Macaroons

For an added fruity flavor, these Coconut-Apricot Macaroons from Martha Stewart are also relatively simple to make and include an extra delectable flavor to impress guests, family and friends. We would avoid adding chocolate to these, but to each their own!

French Macarons

The infamous French Macaron is a little more complex to make, but not impossible! This version from Allrecipes.com lays out great instructions on whipping up this delightful treat.

Macaron vs. Macaroon

The best way to tell these apart, besides their appearance, of course, is flavor. Macaroons will always be coconut flavored, whereas Macarons can have virtually endless flavor possibilities. Nads’ Bakery offers more information on the differences in these treats, although both are exceptionally lovely.
