Do you know the difference between macarons/macaroons? As far as I can work out the French style macarons are multi-coloured and layered together with a ganache. Macaroons, are possibly Italian and are shredded coconut and egg whites. Then we have these Amaretti ones which are ground almonds, caster sugar and egg whites and which according to this cutting are Sicillian – confused? I am. They all taste terrific though….
