In context: A macaroon (/mækəˈruːn/ mak-ə-roon) is a type of small circular cake, typically made from ground almonds (the original main ingredient), coconut, and/or other nuts or even potato, with sugar, egg white, and sometimes flavorings (e.g. honey, vanilla, spices), food coloring, glace cherries, jam and/or a chocolate coating. Some recipes call for sweetened condensed milk.  Macaroons are often baked on edible rice paper placed on a baking tray.

Amaretti di Saronno are a usually crunchy variety from Saronno. Both are often served on special occasions such as Christmas.
