Macarons & Macaroons Are Totally Different

Ok cop..tumpang buat entry jap..continue from yesterday..

Thank you CikPuan Nadia for sharing. Macaron and macaroons are totally different. not just the spellings.

Let us check the definition i found from here and here.

"A macaron specifically refers to a meringue-based cookie made with almond flour, egg whites, and granulated and powdered sugar, then filled with buttercream or fruit spread. The delicate treat has a crunchy exterior, and a weightless interior with a soft ending that's almost nougatlike in its chewiness. To add to the confusion, it's often called a French macaroon.

In contrast, the word macaroon is a generic phrase that is applied to a number of small, sweet confections. Mostly, the term is equated with the the moist and dense coconut macaroon, which is composed of egg whites, sugar, and dried coconut, piped with a star-shaped tip, and often dipped in chocolate. The coconut macaroon, or congolais, as it's known in France, is frequently served during Passover because it contains no flour."

These are the pictures. i never taste macaroons, but from the shape..i prefer macarons sbb lagi comel....haha teruk memandang paras rupa :p
