Gingersnaps – Miette Patisserie

Gingersnaps Miette Patisserie

Luscious ginger flavored cookies, perfectly molded, dusted with sugar and stacked in a cute container for your enjoyment!  These cookies were delicious, and the ginger flavor was not overwhelming.  They had a bit of a crunch and a faint nutty flavor.  No wonder these morsels made the 7X7 Big Eat list!

I remember having macarons once or twice as a kid, but it’s only recently that I’ve truly “discovered” these amazing confections! They’re like magic in your mouth – a dizzying combination of chewy, soft, crunchy, silky, grainy, and sweet.  There are so many flavors and colors that each time you try a different one, it’s a completely new and exciting experience.  Miette serves some of the best in town.  Of these three flavors, I liked hazelnut the best!
