My friend R gave me this sweet box of sunshine from The Sweet Lobby on Barrack’s Row. I love macarons because their almond paste and egg white-based cookies are so delicate with just a touch of sweetness. And their array of colors are so . . . happy!
Macarons are also a baking challenge I have yet to conquer. The last time I attempted pistachio macarons, the cookies were chewy and imperfectly round. So, I’m happy that I can bypass the frustration for now and get my macaron fix at The Sweet Lobby.
