Macarons de Nancy at Financier

Hi I bought the last bag of these last night at the Chelsea location. They said they were making them special for Passover but could not tell me what was different about them other than their ganache filling. The texture is a little more dense than the other Financier macarons from what I remember. Also they taste a little like bitter almonds so maybe there's almond paste as well as regular ground almonds/almond flour added? Web searches provided some historical notes about their invention at an Abbey in Lorraine but were otherwise vague. TIA ~nigella sativa
