My Onnie sent me two dozen Paulette Macarons, just to say hello and that she loves me. While home in SF celebrating 80 years of grace and hilarity in her honor, we (Onnie, my mom, aunts, and I) sampled the French cookies that had been overnighted the day before; so fresh. Cutting each into fourths, we avoided a sugary overdose but didn't miss out on the creative flavors. Favorites included violet cassis, lemon, rose, and chocolate. Grazie mille Onnie, and happy birthday. Love love love all around.
