I am eschewing the cupcake phenomenon. Okay, I like a good cupcake as much as the next gal but, if I am going to go crazy for a sweet it will always be a French macaroon. Like the ones at Miette in the San Francisco ferry terminal or at Pamplemouse in Redwood City.
Why am I crazy for the French macaroon? Lots of reasons:
- It’s much lighter than a cupcake.
- French – like me – need I say more?
- Usually cheaper.
- It’s the original macaroon!
- Not sugary sweet.
