Ketchup Macarons, a Savory French/American Snack

If you think these macarons are raspberry flavored, don't bite into them just yet; they're filled with ketchup and cornichon-flavored filling. Pastry chef David Lebovitz makes Pierre Hermé's ketchup macarons with pretty good results. "The taste wasn't bad and I could imagine these as a savory-sweet hors d'œuvre, rather than for dessert—which I think is what they're intended for," says Lebovitz. He shares the recipe in his post, but you can find this recipe and more in Hermé's French book, Macaron.
