Parisian macarons are colorful, sandwich-like confections filled with jam, ganache, or butter. The fillings come in a variety of flavors, and they’re encased by cookies made of egg whites, sugar and ground almonds.

Macaroons are flourless cookies made of egg whites, sugar, ground almonds, coconut and sometimes, chocolate.

The word macaroon comes from the Italian word, maccarone, which means “paste.”
