Recently we updated Plia’s blog and many of our posts disappeared. But this is a topic that needs a re-post.

Since Ladurée opened in NYC, we wanted to show the difference between a macaron and a macaroon:

In the US, a macaroon (double o) is a coconut cookie. It’s a cookie that is well liked in the midwest and some southern states.

A macaron is a totally different treat/cookie usually available via French bakeries, etc. So don’t feel pretentious saying “macaron” with the French spelling. That’s how it should be! And there is no need to call it a French macaron or a French macaroon. A macaron is a macaron no matter where you live.

It’s always surprising how many misspell and don’t even know about the other macaroon coconut cookie.
