Default Almonds?

I'm thinking for my Christmas brew this year that I will try to use almonds or apricot kernels. What I'm going for is an Amaretto-like flavor in the beer.

I was wondering if anyone out there has brewed with almonds or any kind of nut for that matter, and what they feel is the best way to get the flavor in the beer.

I'm not opposed to using extract, or even making my own extract with vodka.

Please lend me advice only if you have actually done something like this before.
