What's the name of this?

It's meringue on the outside and buttercream on the inside?  For the life of me I can't think of the name.

 

A buttercream sandwich but small.

Sounds like a Swiss merinque?

You're not thinking of a french style macaroon?

 

Not really a meringue since it's got almonds in it, but they are commonly made into buttercream sandwiches. Pretty trendy.

From your description they sound like meringue "kisses"  There's also Pavlova.

I agree with the train of thought here, do they look like this ?

These are definitely Macaroons - not sure if they are considered Swiss or French or what, but they sure are tasty!
