French Macarons can be divas sometimes! In order to fully enjoy the texture and flavor of a Poeme macaron, we ask you to leave the macaron at room temperature for about 40 minutes before eating so that the filling softens and permeates the shell. An easy way to test the macaron is to lightly squeeze the shells–if it feels soft, it’s good to go! A true exercise in patience 🙂
Macarons can be refrigerated for 1-2 weeks and frozen for three months (the must be stored at least refrigerated). If freezing your macarons, make sure to put them in an airtight container; we recommend placing the frozen macarons in the fridge the day before serving, then bringing them to room temperature 20-40 minutes before eating. You may also thaw the frozen macarons at room temperature, but it may take a little longer than from the fridge. Be careful handling them—these meringue shells are delicate and can crack if put under too much pressure.
