Though they’re almost spelled identically, macaroons and macarons are very different cookies. A macaroon (pronounced “mack-ah-ROON”) is a dense, chewy coconut-based cookie, sometimes dipped in chocolate. A macaron (pronounced “mack-ah-ROHN”) is an almond meringue-based cookie with a sandwich filling, made in flavors like pistachio or strawberry. They’re both delicious, so don’t ask us to choose which is better!
