12 Days Of Cookies A Gourmet Cookie Extravaganza...Chocolate Wafers


On the 7th day of Christmas Cookies Glamah baked for me Chocolate Wafers,Viennese Vanilla Crescents, Bizcochitos(Anise Cookies), Brown Butter Cookies,Chocolate Meringue Biscuits, Benne Wafers, and Navettes Sucrees. Yes we are halfway into this cookie thing. By now we may seem calm and collected on our posts, but we are hitting some roadblocks ,and extreme cookie anxiety. Did I mention Certain Someone thinks I'm completely cookie crazed and is getting annoyed .I had to remind him I wont be blogging fro the rest of December after this because I will be in Germany without access to Internet.Thankfully the pleasure on the recipients faces makes this worth while for me. It is a learning experience in what works and doesn't in baking, and most important accurate recipe writing. As I said yesterday I took two types of cookies to work and they were gone in 60 minutes. I wasn't sure what the reaction would be. Even people who don't like sweets complimented the Viennese Vanilla Crescents and Chocolate Wafers. Gourmet first published this recipe in the 1950's. They say they were 'quite smitten with wafer cookies". If you looking for a dough that chills overnight that you can slice or cut out, this is for you! I did not have the breakfast cocoa the recipe called for, but used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa. That's why these look more like dark chocolate wafers. The wafers bake up buttery and crisp. The flavor with the dark cocoa was reminiscent of a Oreo without the filling. I don't know about you, but that was always my favorite part.

Be sure to visit my other baking friends and see what they chose to bake for the holidays from Gourmet.com.

Wow Courtney. Those looks o dark and shiny. I bet they were wonderful. I bet you could add a cream filling and they would be delicious!!!

Oh my God-- this are homemade Famous Wafer Cookies!!!! My family has always used the packaged cookies in desserts and I didn't think it was possible to make them at home but your cookies look (and from your description taste) exactly like what I'm looking for. I will have to make these.

I know exactly how these would taste, and YES everyone would love them. Cute shape you used on them, too. Thanks for the tips w/your ingredients -- it will help when I get around to these...YUM.

These look great, I like the idea of home made oreos, or even the ice cream sandwich seems appealing. Great recipe thanks for trying it out.

Heather said...

Andrea said...

Those look fabulous, I can only imagine how good they tasted. Your colleagues at work are so fortunate to be taste testers!

I don't care how much they look like the store bought ones, there's nothing like home made.
