What are macarons?
Unlike its American cousin macaroon, macarons are of french origin and they are super basic-looking; just 2 cookie shells and some sort of a filling! They are a pain to make but they are absolutely a delight when you get them right.
Most of my macarons have a topping on the top cookie shell, and a double filling; an outer and a center filling.
For example, my White Chocolate Raspberry Macaron is made of 2 vanilla shells, and they sandwich an outer filling that consists of a classic white chocolate ganache, while the center filling is a homemade raspberry jam.

Are macarons gluten-free? Dairy-free?
All of our flavor are gluten-free unless specifically stated otherwise. Look for a (G) next to a flavor that indicates that that specific flavor includes gluten
We're currently looking into options to provide dairy-free options to our macarons. Currently, all of our macarons contain milk and/or butter.
I’m allergic to almond flour. Is it possible to get that substituted?
All macarons without exception contain almond flour. Unfortunately, that can't be substituted since it's a major component to what constitutes a macaron. That may change in the future if I’m able to perfect a recipe without using almond flour.
What are the basic general care instructions?
For best results, our macarons should be refrigerated and consumed within 5-7 days of pickup. We don't recommend it, but most of them can be frozen for up to a maximum of a month.
Our macarons are best served at room temperature. If you will be storing them in a refrigerator, please allow approximately 10-15 minutes to reach room temperature or 30 minutes if coming from the freezer.
Do I have to join your email list?
Absolutely not. However, this is where most of our big updates and sales will be announced! Also, if you join our list, you’ll also receive free macarons on your birthday!
