Happy Macaron Day, everyone! Today is a day to celebrate the delicious, delicate, and notoriously difficult little cookie, the macaron. If you’re in Paris or NYC, you might be able to score free macarons from a famous bakery (lucky you!), but if you live elsewhere, I suggest you take the opportunity to whip up a batch of your own macarons. Are they challenging? Yes, but the result is so, so worth it. Click on the gallery above for 5 classic macaron recipes, perfect for beginners, and good luck!
