Macaron - The little french meringue and almond type biscuits that are sandwiched together with a buttercream, making a bit of a comeback of late.
Macaroon - Those coconut and condensed milk chewy things your nan would make (well mine did, and I think she would push a glace cherry in the top to finish!)
Although they were delicious, they were not as smooth as I would like. This is because I am lazy and didn't whizz up the ground almonds in a food processor. Most patisseries use almond flour and I think using this would be no fail - not sure where I can find that though!
