For this challenge, I submit the following photo of macarons on a sign at the entrance of a bakery in Paris:



It is said that macarons have been around since the 8th century, and these days they seem to be everywhere in Paris. They are a light, crunchy type of biscuit filled with a soft and sweet middle of various kinds of jams, chocolates, and decadent things like foie gras! I had an almond crusted big one filled with slices of peach.

Following is my unofficial translation of the sign: “Macarons, the small pastries with a crunchy shell and a melting heart. For the season, the month, the mystery.”
