The joy of a French macaron! The delicate meringue cookie is a sweet luxury to taste yet a sensitive and challenging dessert to perfect. It is no wonder that it has its own holiday, Macaron Day, that is celebrated around the world on March 20th. This year, Bisous Bisous Pâtisserie, the award-winning bakery in West Village in Dallas, will be paying tribute by offering one free churro-flavored macaron to every customer on Macaron Day (Saturday, March 20) between 8am to 5pm.
The churro macarons, inspired by neighboring Mexico’s popular cinnamon and sugar fried dough pastries, are a limited-edition flavor only available on Macaron Day.
