Macaron or Macaroon?

Sekarang dah bulan 12 mean bulan 1 bakal tiba.. Hmm makin tua dah weh. Eh siapa pernah dengar pasal "macaron". Ramai gak yang sekarang tengah bising bising makan benda ni. Teringin la pulak kan nak makan. Tapi saya ni duduk temerloh malas nak naik kl. Dah minta kat suami nak makan tapi masa kami ni terhad. Huhu OK OK saya tetap akan dapat makan jugak. Pada siapa yang ta tahu apa itu macaron meh saya terangkan.

Yang paling penting sekali adalah MACARON dan MACAROON adalah benda yang sangat lain. So sila jangan confius tau.

MACARON - A macaron is a sweet confectionery. Its name is derived from an Italian word "maccarone" or "maccherone". This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient. It is meringue-based: made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and both granulated and confectionery sugar.The confectionery is characterized by its smooth, domed top, ruffled circumference (referred to as the "foot"), flat base, mildly moist and easily melted into mouths. Connoisseurs prize a delicate, egg shell-like crust that yields to a moist and airy interior. The macaron is commonly filled with a buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two macaron cookies.Macarons can be found in a wide variety of flavors that range from the traditional (raspberry, chocolate) to the new (truffle, green matcha tea). Since the English word macaroon can also refer to the Coconut macaroon, many have adopted the French spelling of macaron to distinguish the two items in the English language. However, this has caused confusion over the correct spelling of the cookie. Some recipes exclude the use of macaroon to refer to this French confection while others think that they are synonyms.

MACAROON - The word macaroon is applied to a variety of light, baked confections, described as either small cakes or meringue-like cookies depending on their consistency.
The original macaroon was a "small sweet cake consisting largely of ground almonds" similar to Italian or Moroccan amaretti. The English word macaroon and French macaron come from the Italian maccarone or maccherone. This word is itself derived fromammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient. Most recipes call for egg whites (usually whipped to stiff peaks), with ground or powdered nuts, generally almond or coconut. Almost all call for sugar. Macaroons are commonly baked on edible rice paper placed on a baking tray.
