Sarah Bernhardt


Yep, that's what these delicious Danish treats are called. It looks like they take a macaroon cookie, flip it over and scoop out the bottom of the cookie. The scooped-out bottom is filled with a chocolate mousse-type filling so that it comes to a point like a pyramid. The pyramid part is the covered with a chocolate coating and topped with cherry flakes at the tip. How did this scrumptious treat come to be named after a long gone stage actress? Well, it seems during a Ms. Bernhardt performance one of her breasts happen to pop out of her dress. Now do you see the resemblance? There are quite a few variations on this with many bakeries substituting the mousse filling with an inferior butter cream.
