A bit high, but not as high as one would think in the high-end patisserie market.  I regularly see them for 2-3 Euro ea. at the shops.

The Child stole cookies from a doof who didn't share.

William and Sonoma have odd ideas about "sweet moments."

"Remember when your brother wouldn't let you have a turn on his new bike, and you cut the break lines? We remember. We remember everything, and if you pay enough, every slight can turn into delicious gold in your memories, as well as cash in our pockets. Remember, living well and out of the means of those who ever slighted you is the BEST revenge."

No way. No one has ever used the Starwars franchise as a blatant cash grab.

4 bucks USD for a farking fancy cookie? You could buy a pack of farkin' Oreos for the same price and get the same sugar addiction fix.

They actually are fairly difficult to make... but, that's an excellent recipe as it has all sorts of tips built into the directions, such as mix on low speed and a test for stiff peaks, and adhering the parchment paper to the pan. It requires a piping bag, and 24 hours to "bloom, and you actually have to have almond flour on hand that hasn't gone rancid.

I think they're kind of a pain in the ass to make.

The recipe is "make meringue and fold almond flour through it", that's not hard.

It does sound like it'll take a few very spaced out steps though.

First, I learned this week that I'm apparently the only person who ever called them "macaroons".

Second, they totally missed an opportunity by not calling these things "Chewbaccarons".

I don't understand why they are named after France's President.  I thought I remembered Macrons being around when I was a kid.

Macaroons are a different, coconut-based treat.

those claiming how easy macarons are to make are forgetting how long it took them to master a piping bag, learning to use silpats, being careful to let things set as long as they need to, monitoring bake time and temp.

macarons are expensive in bakeries because they are a labor intensive PITA treat. do what i did, marry someone who bakes really well. i've saved tens of thousands of dollars in bakery purchases.

yes, i am fat. mmm hmmm.

They're not necessarily difficult, but kind of finicky.

Most bakeries also use the Italian meringue method, which adds a little complexity to the process.

If you are into anime, they could be Macrossarons, and cause you to spit up protoculture.

That's just unnecessarily confusing.

That would be like having Oreos and Ooreos, and the Ooreos are some weird coconut-marshmallow thing instead of a sandwich cookie.

Who's naming these things?!

Exactly. Those prices are on par with Ladurée.

In France, macarons are a posh pastry

The chocolate chip cookies produced by DoubleTree for the ISS cost a lot less than that, and those were from a recipe that actually was in outer space!

Those are fair points.
I've made the recipe five times, and twice they ended up looking like sand dollars. Couldn't figure out where I went wrong.
As for the piping bags, I use parchment paper, easy to prepare and far cheaper.
Have you tried making your own almond flour? All you really need is a food processor. Way better than store bought stuff, plus no anti-caking additives.
Mmmmmm, all this talk about macarons.. I think I'll make some blue ones this weekend. Pics will be taken. Just need to find a baby Yoda plush ;-D

The Italian meringue method I mentioned upthread will yield a better rise in the cookie, and it's more forgiving when you fold it into the flour mixture. The only caveat is you need a stand mixer.
