Make Way for Macarons

These light-as-air treats are now on trend.


Now that winter’s bread puddings and sticky date cakes are behind us, we’re indulging our sweet tooths with light-as-air, pastel-hued French macarons. (Did we mention they make an excellent Mother’s Day gift?) Filled with rich ganache, jam, or gooey caramel, these chic little almond-meringue cookies are our new springtime sugar fix. 

Chantilly Patisserie 

You won’t go wrong with classics like chocolate or dulce de leche, but don’t miss the rotating selection of seasonal flavors, including sophisticated raspberry-rose, summery strawberry, tart lemon, and the whimsical funfetti or PB&J. 135 Parkway Rd, Bronxville; 914.771.9400; 


La Tulipe

Owner Maarten Steenman revels in creating sophisticated pastries with unique flavor profiles — and his macarons are no exception. Think outside the box (well, pastry case) and try variations like fig, cassis, strawberry-balsamic, vodka-lime, and spiced mango. 455 Lexington Ave, Mount Kisco; 914.242.4555; 



Yes, we know it’s a chain, but you can’t beat the convenience of this franchise with three White Plains locations, including a kiosk at The Westchester. And it’s not just convenience: Woops! does a solid job with myriad flavors, including rose, raspberry, vanilla, butterscotch, and passion fruit. Visit for a list of county locations.
