Right up there withe red velvet anything are the insipid little sugar patties called macaron. Extraordinarily laborious to construct, they are maybe the most overrated (and over-instagrammed) cookie of all time.
My biggest grievance however isn't with the confections inane colors and horrific flavors. It's the people that call them macaroons. Macaroons are simple and delicious. Macaron are the exact opposite. Their great great great great great grandfather's may have been the same. But macaroons and macarons are bastard cousins at best.
