Treats Fit for a Queen (or King): Top 3 French Macaron Shops you must Visit

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the French Macaron–a small piece of heaven from the pastry gods. For those of you who don’t know what a macaron is, it is two brightly colored, meringue based cookies from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and sugar. Within these two cookies, you will find a jam or ganache filling. Yummy, right?
