In English, macaroon.
In my mouth—so yummy!
The word macaroon comes from an Italian or Latin word for crush or beat. These delightful cookies are named this because the main ingredient is crushed almonds. In addition to almond paste, most macaroons have whipped egg whites, coconut, and of course sugar.
Macaroons have been around for centuries, with some early recipes being in the very first cookbooks. Here are a few up-to-date recipes:
