Just Desserts with Jane: French Macarons

Jane Henry, the owner of Jane’s Sugar Magnolia in Dallas, is taking us behind the scenes of her bakery and sharing how-to videos, recipes and decorating tips. From cookies to cupcakes, this series will show you how to make stunning sweets with a little help from a pro.

These Colorful Cookies Taste as Great as They Look

The French macaron (pronounced ma-kr-aan) has quickly become a crowd favorite at Jane’s Sugar Magnolia, and we’re just as excited about them as you! These sandwich cookies are the perfect sweet delicacy.

Macarons are a meringue-based cookie made with egg whites, almond flour and sugar (not to be confused with coconut macaroons). They’re cakey, airy and totally irresistible. They can be created in hundreds of different flavors, and the color possibilities are endless.

These treats are available for pre-order from our Mother’s Day menu. The six-cookie variety pack is $20 and includes one of each of the following flavors: strawberry, mimosa, lemon, pistachio cream cheese, blueberry tarragon and earl grey. You can place an order by calling the bakery at (570) 255-4383 or sending an email to [email protected] Orders are due by 11:30 p.m. on May 3 for pickup on May 8.

While macarons aren’t something that we have on a daily basis, you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see when we have other flavors available in our case. And make sure to check out this behind-the-scenes video to see how we make these popular treats.
