Sweets Bakeshop Macaron!

Macaron on the dashboard of my car.

Is anyone tired of reading about macaron? I don’t blame you if you are. I hesitated to bring them up again for fear that another blog post about macaron might make the Internet come crashing down around all of us. I decided to risk it for people living in the Minneapolis – St. Paul area who have not yet found Sweets Bakeshop.

In the comment section of my previous post about macaron reader Maria suggested I try the macaron at Sweets Bakeshop. Now I get it! Now I understand why people go gaga over these little french style cookies. I had one filled with chocolate ganache which was very good, praline also very good, and salted caramel which were the best. Next time I’m headed straight for the salted caramel.

For better or worse I’ve decided I’m still not going to make my own. They’re very good, but the next time I need a macaron fix I’m headed toward Sweets Bakeshop. You’ll find them (and maybe me) at 2042 Marshall Ave, St. Paul, MN, or 4747 Nicollet Ave S., Minneapolis, MN.  And like Maria said. Have a cupcake while you’re there. You won’t regret it.

    Haha! I’m glad you finally found macarons that you enjoy! I am going to San Francisco this Fall for a conference and I plan to hit up some bakeries to retry them again too, with high hopes that I’ll have a change of heart like you did.

    I recently picked up a couple of Peter Reinhart’s books at the library, and as you said, his writing voice is far superior. I took the time to read the entire introduction of his Whole Grains book. It was a good read and really got me excited about breadmaking. I tried the master recipe, and it was very very tasty. I think for everyday eating I might be more inclined to stick with no-knead/almost no-knead recipes (I’m really excited to try stuff from his Artisan Breads Every Day book!) but learning about the delayed fermentation process and theories opened my eyes to what makes the no-knead process work. Thanks for the recommendation!

    You would think after six months of blogging I would remember to check comments that are waiting for moderation! I entered the six items into the state fair on Sunday. I will find out Thursday online if I won anything! Thanks for checking in with me!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment :o) I like your blog, especially the hamburger buns now that I’m trying to shift gears a tiny bit and bake more bread (well, anything with yeast really, so that includes sweet things too).
    Thanks for the tip on this bakery. I haven’t jumped on the macaroon bandwagon (and would like to keep it that way) but I should at least try one (that someone else baked) :o)
