Macarons @ Tisserie

Here is a close up picture of the macarons at Tisserie. The pastries and cakes on the lower shelf are (from left) chocolate cup cakes with caramel icing, almond croissants, chocolate croissant (drizzled with chocolate sauce), caramel eclairs and chocolate eclairs.

I love almond croissants or croissants aux amandes. According to Clotilde Desoulier of Chocolate & Zuchini and cookbook author, almond croissants are usually made with day-old croissants that was filled with almond paste (marzipan), then slathered with egg wash, sprinkled with sliced almonds and baked in the oven until the almonds are slightly toasted. After that, they are sprinkled with a dusting of powdered sugar and they are ready to be served.

Well there goes the diet...
Croissants aux amandes are absolutely delicious but only to be eaten once a month!

Oh! I've never seen macarons outside Paris! But then, I don't get out of E. Lansing much. ;)

Thank you so much for your nice comment today at ELDP, and I look forward to your visits at Flying, and coming back to New York with you here!
