Time for a French Goûter! 

Macarons for a French Goûter

 

Le Goûter is an old French tradition that comes from the French verb 'Goûter', which means 'to taste'. As you may know French people traditionally have their lunch between noon and 1pm and eat dinner around 8pm. So "Le Goûter" happens between these two meals, around 4pm. It could be the equivalent to the British afternoon tea.
