Indulging never tasted so good

If you're anything like me, you like your sweet indulgences to be worth it. I read about Francois Payard Bakery's amazing ice cream sandwiches and had to try them. I adore macarons, so when I saw a Serious Eat's feature that mentioned a macaron ice cream sandwich, I made it a weekend downtown trip destination. And now I have to recommend it because it was SO good.

If you don't want one of these, we probably can't be friends...
I had the raspberry pistachio sandwich, which is made of a pistachio macaron with raspberry and pistachio ice cream. The crunchy outer macaron shell combined with the frozen ice cream and softer macaron center was a wonderful contrast. The whole thing was so good that I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since I gobbled mine down on Saturday. If you're in New York and like macarons and/or ice cream (and honestly, who doesn't??), then you should probably drop by one of the three Francois Payard Bakeries in the city and try one as a treat. It's worth the indulgence!

Have you tried a worthwhile indulgence lately?
