storing your macs

You bought 'em, now what? Macarons left on the counter willy-nilly without an airtight container won't go bad, but they also won't keep their fine, chewy texture. That would be a bummer.

You have refined taste. Here's how to keep your bougie cookies, bougie. 

For maximum freshness and the best texture, store macarons in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you're ready to eat. They will keep up to 7 days. Let them come up to room temperature for 15-20 minutes and enjoy! 

Not going to eat them within 5-7 days? Impressive self-control. 

To freeze: place them in an airtight container with a piece of paper towel to absorb any moisture. Put that box in the freezer. You can also wrap the box they came in really well with plastic wrap if you do not wish to transfer from the package. They will stay fresh for up to two months.


When you want to enjoy, take them directly from the freezer to the refrigerator and don't open the lid.  This can cause condensation which will make them weep, then you'll start to weep, then everyone will be crying and it'll be a mess. Once they're in the fridge for 1-2 hours, you can bring them to room temperature for 15-20 minutes and enjoy. (Hey, don't get mad at me- you were the patient one who wanted to freeze them. You can wait just a little longer for optimal consumption.)

I typically wrap and/or heat seal packages so you can put them in the fridge or freezer as received.
