We always thought of macaroons as Passover treats until we moved to Paris, where we found they were a beloved treat year round.

Unlike the Passover coconut macaroons we were used to, the French macaroons displayed prominently in the windows of top patisseries were made with ground almonds and were light and airy. They came in different colors and flavors and were usually sandwiched in pairs. They gave us plenty of ideas for new Passover sweets.
