What Is a Macaron?
A classic macaron is a meringue-based dessert, looking like a neat round sandwich. If you tried to carefully disassemble it, you’d see that it’s made up with two meringue disks with a layer of jam or ganache filling between them.
The disks are made with almond flour, egg whites, sugar, and natural flavorings. The latter make macarons so bright and chic. The filling… It can be made with whatever is able to become a filling – from vanilla buttercream to jelly.
If you’re still thinking whether you want to buy macarons or not, you can be sure you’re about to make a sumptuous purchase. Macarons are a perfect representation of perfect harmony between the outside and inside. The crunchy shell smoothly combines with the chewy filling. And the surprising mix of the two flavors will delight your taste buds.
Is a Macaron the same as a Macaroon?
Yes and no.
You may be now wondering where to buy macaroons. So, the term “macarons” may appear a little confusing.
If we dig deeper into the history of the two words, we’ll see that they have the same meaning. But technically, the macaron and macaroon are different desserts. The French macaroons don’t look like round sandwiches. A macaroon is rather a dollop of shredded coconut and egg mixture, baked into a delicate cookie.
Does Marky’s Sell Macarons or Macaroons?
At Marky’s online store, you can buy macarons – the classic sandwich-like confectionary. We do not have macaroons for sale.
What Makes Macarons’ Price?
Macarons are a fancy treat. The price of one piece does include the fresh and high-quality ingredients, where almond flour and some exotic fillings and edible ornaments are pricey indeed.
But also, when you buy a beautiful set of macarons, you pay for the time, expertise, and scrupulousness that it takes to create even, smooth, eye-catching, and delicious pieces.
Are French Macarons Gluten Free?
If you order macarons online at Marky’s, you can be sure that they’re 100% gluten free. Besides, compared to a fashionable cupcake with 400 calories inside, one cute macaron has from 70-100 calories, depending on a filling.
So, if calories matter to you, you now know what to choose.
How to Store Macarons?
After you buy macarons online, you may need to keep them attractive and crunchy for some period of time. Here are a few tips.
- If you opt for the smaller, 6 or 12 piece sets, you can keep them for up to 24 hours at a room temperature.
- But if you want to keep the dessert for a longer time, put the macarons in the fridge. At a much colder temperature, they will last well for up to 3 days. Before serving, let them rest a room temperature for 15-20 minutes.
- If you buy a large 72-piece set, you may need to freeze a part of macarons. Surprisingly, this confectionery can be frozen without sacrificing its look and flavors. In the freezer, macarons will stay safe and sound for up to 3-4 months. But remember to let them defrost for 30-40 minutes before serving.
- In all cases, store macarons in an airtight container or in a special macaron box.
