Japanese cream crackers/biscuits/cookies in SF?

Honey88 | Nov 21, 200203:29 AM     18

Please help me, I'm desperate to find these Japanese cream cookies!!

I recently went to Japan and picked up, on a whim, these "Half Moon" biscuits. They're two very fine wafers with green tea or red bean cream filling between them. The wafers are semi-circles, with a rabbit in a moon embossed on them (how cute!!).

These biscuits were the most delicious, crispy snacks ever! They were quite brittle and you had to break them before eating them or they'd fly all over the place.

My sister has heard so much about these biscuits, she really wants to try them. Unfortunately, I've finished them (*grin*) and am now searching for more.

Recommendations for substitutes also welcome.... I've heard of "French biscuits" in Clement street grocery stores, but am not sure they're the same thing?

Thanks for the help
