They’re wafer-like and came in a little plastic tub (like the kind you get out of the deli). I had the chocolate and vanilla flavors, but there could be others. The cookies were not very sweet, and had a crumbly texture. I think they might be an ethnic*, or specialty item, because I’ve never seen them in my (small) town.
*I got them from a Jewish person, who got them from a large city. That might be relevant.
Chocolate is a flavor. There might have been alternating layers of brown and golden color, but I can’t remember. There also could have been a pattern (criss cross like sugar wafers), but again, I’m not sure. I know it’s not much to go on, but I haven’t seen them in about six years.
Annie Xmas and ddgryphon, no that’s not them. Those florentine cookies sound good though. The second link is a picture of what’s known as sugar wafers around here. Sugar wafers are much sweeter than the things I’m thinking of.
You may be tallking about a pizzelle. They are an Italian cookie made on an iron
just like a waffle. They are traditionally anise flavor but I have made chocolate and other flavors. Here is a Picture .
