Macaroon Day and Mighty Morsels



Mmm! Macaroons! Do you love ‘em?

Crunchy or chewy, macaroon cookies are a tasty treat, particularly today. It’s National Macaroon Day in the United States.

Macaroons are for sharing!

Did you hear the age-old story about the two elderly twin sisters, Grace and Gloria, who shared a single set of dentures?
One day, the two ladies were invited to a grand gala at the local country club. They decided to take turns with their teeth. Grace dolled herself up first, popped in the choppers, and headed for the festive gathering.

After an hour or so, Grace returned home to give her sister a chance at the prestigious party.

“How was it?” Gloria asked.

Grace handed the dental set to her sister, who promptly inserted them into her own mouth and chomped the plates into place.

“Umm, macaroons!” Gloria exclaimed, as she bit down on the still-warm dentures.

Who’s craving macaroons now?

Check out these yummy macaroon recipes from several online writers.

Ever since Boule on La Cienega closed, you have to think a little harder about where to find good French macaroons in Hollywood. One way is to make your own macaroons.
