I've always wanted to be a baker...and if I was, I'd surely be making macarons on a daily basis. They're lovely and colorful and you can be as creative as you like with the flavors. At Tree House Macarons in Brunswick, Georgia, Kelley and Eric Roundtree are certified macaronologists and have certainly perfected this beloved treat...adding a Southern twist here and there.
Macarons are sweet French sandwich cookies, made of egg whites, sugar and almonds (so they are naturally gluten free). The fun part comes in the addition of a center filling, as it's traditional to fill them with ganache, buttercream or jam.
I have three nieces and one nephew in college right now so the gift pack offerings at Tree House are pretty perfect to send to their dorm rooms. I particularly like their Fall Collection which includes nostalgic flavors like Maple Pumpkin Spice Latte, Spiced Apple Cider and Candy Corn. And with an expansive menu that includes flavors like Red Velvet, Butter Pecan, French Toast and Mexican Hot Chocolate, there are certainly enough options to appease any palate.
