I'm going to be making french macarons this weekend - I have some violet pastels that I was going to grind up in the cookie, and then use a vanilla buttercream filling. Any suggestions before I embark? I've made them before (different flavoring) to varying success aesthically, though they always taste delish!

The blogger Tartelette has dozens of wonderful french macaron recipes, and this site ran a french macaron contest last spring. You will find great ideas.

Dried lavender blossoms come to mind. Or you could continue the pastel theme and try a batch with some pomegranate liqueur for flavor and color. Hhmm, now I'm thinking lemony using zest, juice and limoncello....
