The Cookie That Launches a Season

Sugar Fixé’s macarons are served in Lincoln Park.

The first sign of spring may very well be when Chicago’s Sugar Fixé releases the Peeps macarons, with the colorful sanding sugars. This shop is not just another fly-by-night macaron joint. Mais non! Owner Cindy Summers left her well-paid corporate job to train at the French Pastry School in Chicago. Her second location, in Lincoln Park, opened in February. Welcome to the ‘hood.
