(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Macarons

These were labelled "macaroons" at the store... am I the only one who finds this incredibly annoying? These cute littles cookies are macarons - macaroons are typically no-bake coconut-chocolate cookies...

Anyway, this weekend Pat and I went for a drive, exploring, and stopped at a little bakery. I'd never had macarons, so despite the mislabelling, I picked up one of each flavour. Which was four, but I devoured the lemon one before taking these photos. These are chocolate, pistachio and raspberry. Pistachio was my favourite. They had a really interesting, light texture with an almost-crispy crust. I'd definitely try them again, or put the effort into making some of my own.
