So Is there a difference in Macaroon and Macaron ?

I had to do a little digging and a big difference- and its not only in the spelling .

Macaroons –

a small cookie composed chiefly of egg whites, sugar, and ground almonds or coconut

 

Macarons

a light, often brightly colored sandwich cookie consisting of two rounded disks made from a batter of egg whites, sugar, and almond flour surrounding a sweet filling (as of ganache, buttercream, or jam)
