What is the difference between macaron and macaroon?
Macaron (mack-ah-ROHN) is a meringue based cookie made with almond flour, powdered sugar, and egg whites. This finicky and precise dessert is comprised by sandwiching delicious filling between two delicate and fragile shells. This filling infusing into the delicate shells is what creates the unique texture of macarons.

Macaroons are extremely sweet and are mostly made of shredded coconut and that is the pirmary texture you experience when eating one.
Do you ship your macarons?
At this time, I do not ship my macarons. Right now, The Salted Parchment just serves Nashville, TN and its surrounding areas. Hopefully as the business grows and expands, shipping will become more possible.
What is the best way to keep macarons fresh?
The best way to keep macarons fresh is to store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. Macarons can be kept for a week in the fridge or up to a month in the freezer if kept in a quality airtight container.
