NATIONAL MACAROON DAY
Each year on May 31, National Macaroon Day is observed. This day celebrates the macaroon, a small meringue-like cookie.
Most macaroon recipes call for egg whites, sugar and almond paste. Recipes for macaroons can be found in recipe books dating back to 1725 (Robert Smith’s Court Cookery or the Complete English Cook).
The coconut macaroon is most commonly found in the United States. Most varieties of coconut macaroons are dipped in milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate. Almonds, pecans, cashews or other nuts are sometimes added to the cookie.
