    The dainty macarons at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie at the France Pavilion at Epcot are lined up like beautiful jewels in the pastry case – edible art, a sophisticated, light-as-a-feather French classic.
    Thought to have originated centuries ago – macarons are a delicate, crisp-chewy balance of almond meringue cookies sandwiched with silky centers. They come in various flavors: right now you can find chocolate, raspberry, mixed berries, pistachio and white chocolate, and banana passion, packaged in a pretty box of five for $10.33 plus tax.

    Macarons are a complicated sweet to create – take a look at Chef Olivier Saintemarie’s ballet of sweet ingredients.

    So here's the deal. We bought these. ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL ten dollars worth. Because Baleigh is taking French 2 this year and REALLY wanted to Instagram a photo of her eating them for all her classmates as one of the phrases they've been studying is "Please pass the macorons. Do you enjoy macorons?"

    So we did. And she did. Thank goodness she did it before she actually took a bite, because we did not care for them at all. I don't know what I was expecting...but this wasn't it. They tasted quite dry, and the filling was....not nice at all, IMO.

    Guess I should have done my research, maybe then I would have known what to expect :) I suppose I still have a LOT to learn, eh Tink?

    There's a tiny little bakery in Vienna, VA that sells all sorts of flavors of macarons...Jordan and I thought they were amazing. We'll not be able to try the Disney ones til December, though. :(
