French-style macaroons (macarons)

Ms. Paris | Dec 4, 2005 08:31 PM

Inspired by today's NYT Magazine article on Ladurees amazing macarons, I've decided to make several flavors as my "christmas cookies" this year. Does anyone have any unique and inventive takes on fillings? Some I've seen include matcha/chestnut, lime/basil, etc.

So far, I'm thinking:

Lemon curd (provided by the TImes)
Pomegranate curd (adapted from lemon curd recipe)

If anyone has suggestions - and, even better, recipes that will help me turn those suggestions into freshly-baked macarons - please let me know!
