    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.

    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.
