Parisian Macarons

No, unfortunately I did not make these from scratch (but I hope to in the future).  I was having brunch with Nanxi one morning at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, and it just so happens that there is cute pastry shop, Miette, located within the building as well.  Z had emailed me the day before about a macaron place we should try together, so I knew he had macarons on his mind.  After brunch, I stopped by the shop and picked up a box of 6 macarons (one of each flavor) to surprise Z that night because he was having a really stressful work week.  He ended up not getting home that night until midnight, but was so happy to see these waiting for him on his desk!

Price: $$ ($1.75/cookie)

Difficulty: Easy

Time: Short

Materials you will need:

1. Macaron cookies

2. Box and string to package

3. Leftover card stock for note

I bought the cookies then went to Daiso, a cute and cheap Japanese lifestyle store, to find the packaging for the box.  I didn’t know when Z would be home, so at the risk of me being asleep, I wanted him to read the card and know the box was for him.  The funny thing is, he had no idea what Cookie Monster looked like, so he asked me, “What is that?!”  Z was born in China and didn’t move to the U.S. until he was 6, but that’s still no excuse not to know who Cookie Monster is!
