French macarons strike the perfect, impossibly delicate balance between airy, chewy, and moist. They are notoriously difficult to get right the first time, but once you get the process down, baking these cookies becomes an art. Artisan macarons come in a range of colors and flavors that is a delight not only to the tongue, but the eye as well. Brightly colored cookies are filled with rich, fluffy cremes, sometimes sprinkled with chopped nuts or shaved coconut, and speckled with spices. The options are endless for a innovative baker, so let these delicious recipes be a guide to creating art in your kitchen too!
