Laduree's Reputation Well Deserved

Now I know why Laduree's macarons are so celebrated. These are one of my favorite types of cookies, and since I've only had U.S. made versions, the difference is clear. Many I've tried are overly almond-y or the filling is all about cream and less about flavor.
At the rue Royale salon, I bought 14 of the 16 flavors they had that day (the two omitted were licorice or anise flavored). The filling in the framboise was amazing, like boiled down raspberries right off the vine. Cedrat was also very delicious, citrus-y and just right for summer. My husband loved the chocolate. Ok was the menthe glaciale, only because it would take some getting used to eating a mint cookie that has no chocolate combined.
Yay! I hope to return sooner rather than later...
