The history of the French macaron is a contested one. Even though the French insist the confection originated in France, it is believed that the macaron was actually invented in Italy back in the 16th century by a noblewoman from Florence. Whatever the history of the macaron may be, the one thing we can agree on is our love for the sweet treat.
