Happy National Yet-Another-Very-Specific-Food-Holiday Day, one that should prove popular in Dallas given this delicate French cookie's ardent local following. Several local bakeries are celebrating with deals, fundraisers and — perhaps best of all — free macarons, which is great news considering that these tricky little cookies typically cost around $2 each.
