National Macaroon Day

Date When Celebrated: This holidays is always held on May 31

National Macaroon Day honors the Macaroon, a flourless cookie. It is popular among the Jewish community, especially during Passover, when Jews can not cook with flour. But, the popularity of the Macaroon doesn't stop there. It is also enjoyed around the world.

Macaroons are made from ground nuts and leavened egg whites. Coconut and potato starch is common in Macaroon recipes. Macaroons were believed to have been first made in an Italian monastery in 1792. While monks are well known for their vows of silence, they just couldn't keep quiet about this tasty treat.

Celebrate National Macaroon Day by baking and eating macaroons. If your schedule is tight today, stop by a bakery and select some for both work and for home.


Today's Quote: " When you go into court, you are putting your fate into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty." - - Norm Crosby
