I tasted my first french macaroon over the weekend. Coffee flavored. And I must say, I don't see what all the fuss is about.source]
They are truly a beautiful cookie. Arguably the most beautiful cookie ever thought up. But I didn't really like the texture/consistency. The flavor (coffee, in my case) was fine, they were not overly sweet but sweet enough for a desert. The crunch though...I don't know. I was not overly impressed. I have been wanting to make these for a while now but now I am not feeling it.
Any thoughts? Am I just too critical of cookies?
