Sarah Bernhardt cookies are as multilayered as their namesake, the famed French actress who once starred in the title role of "Hamlet." An almond macaroon base is topped with silken chocolate filling and then covered in melted chocolate, resulting in a truffle-like cookie with a bit of crunch.

    Baked these in a cookie baking class a few years ago. Wonderful! Our recipe didn't use paste, but used almond flour instead. We made it by putting blanched almonds in food processor until fine. Instead of the shortening, try using Ghiradelli's dipping chocolate or add a little paraffin wax to chocolate. It will set up nice

    The 'six cups' of chocolate is a typo. I believe it should read 'six ounces'.

    I wish these would turn out the way I thought they were going to. The flavors are nice, but I wouldn't make these again. I'm a good baker

    This is great because they are gluten-free! I'm going to give these a try soon.

    I definately want to give these cookies a try, because they do not contain a whale of a lot of sugar. But will have to give many away, as eating 60 cookies in 3 days would be a disaster.
