During a recent elongated session of interweb browsing, I became obsessed with Laduree macarons.

Dozens of bloggers are obsessed with eating, baking and searching out local worthy dupes of Parisian Laduree macarons.

Raspberry macarons, which tempt me hugely. I imagine these to have a very jammy filling.

Citrus and basil macarons. Not even sure this flavor combo tempts me, but how beautiful are they?

I can't wait either to read and see about your magnificant macarons! I think you would really enjoy reading a post about a blogger from New York who blogged about her experiences with baking macarons.

Annie,
Although the pics are indeed gorgeous, none of them are mine. Some are from TNT Adventures, a food blog, and the rest are from the Laduree site itself. Pics from my own kitchen will be coming next week.

Kristine,
You can look forward to these in May. I will take flavor requests!
