Laduree

I love my desserts but I don't like them too sweet. Sugar in all my recipes are always cut down to the minimum so much so that my niece and siblings shun my cakes -_-
But I do have a weakness for the super sugary ice-cream and macaroons. Best macaroons I have tasted so far are from Laduree.


Laduree Macaroons
Macaroons nestled inside pretty butterfly box

My favourite flavour is salted caramel followed closely by pistachio. I find they taste best on the second day.

Well made puff pastry with praline filled vanilla custard sandwiched in between. I want to cry after first bite, when will I have another chance to taste this again?? I am so many thousand miles away............ The famous apple strudel from Perth can't even compare, to think I used to rave about it, how ignorant was I, Chinese has a saying,"one mountain is higher than the other........." too right, too right....


Mont Blanc
The famous Mont Blanc. I don't find anything special with this, sorry not a fan. Big King took one bite and "ran until no shadow" kakaka......I have to finish the darn thing in sour face ><

Hi,
I tried to send you email twice, as I would like to have the recipe of coffee cheesecake.
I have gotten no reply from you for the first mail, then I sent you again today but it was rejected, although I am sure that I wrote to rabbit.sim@virgin.net .
Would you mind sending me the recipe to wiranita@gmx.net ?
Thanks for your effort.

They are't called macaroons - Macaroons are made from coconut - these are French - Macarons!

Hi Dina,
Sorry the e-mail is not in use anymore. Will send you the recipe soon.

To smart alek anonymous above on French Macarons:
French - Macarons
English - Macaroons
I believe you haven't notice the Laduree branch I went to is in Harrods, UK. English rule, English spelling. The blog is in English, ain't French. Sorry for the inconvenience. I do admire your guts for posting such an ignorant comment.
