Homemade Chocolate Wafer Cookies, this humble and unlovable cookie, is one with character and history. This nearly black and bittersweet wafer hales from the Wafer family with siblings Ginger and Vanilla. Their parents keep them off your grocery shelves and out of the spotlight. Why? The Wafer sisters were once very fashionable cookies, enjoyed on their own for their simple, yet tasty texture. Wafer cookies were amongst the first commercial cookies produced, and showed up in several varieties in the first edition of the Fanny Farmer Cookbook. Today however, the hunt for the Ginger, Vanilla and Chocolate wafers can be exhausting. The reason for their disappearance is curious because we demand? them for ice cream sandwiches, cookie crusts and ice box cake. ? Hunt no more because this recipe for Homemade Chocolate Wafer Cookies is quick. They bake into a thin, crisp, chocolatey treat that continues to taste wonderful in every application. This recipe is used for the chocolate cookie crust in the Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes. Bake them up today and let me know your thoughts below.
