Wafers they serve in some ice cream shops

Morganna | Aug 18, 2008 04:03 PM

When I as young, and lived in Syracuse, Indiana, there was an old fashioned ice cream shop where they always served wafers with their sundaes. The wafers were fan-shaped, and very thin. Golden brown outside, crispy, with a creamy white (VERY THIN) layer of something sweet in the middle. I have a memory of them being vanilla flavoured.

I recently saw what looked like some of them being served with ice cream in the Brain Freeze episode of Diners Driveins and Dives at the place in New Orleans they featured. The Creole Creamery it was called. They were serving what looked like thsoe wafers with their desserts. I'd LOVE to get my hands on some, or learn how to make them myself.

Anyone know what they might be called, or how I could find a recipe for them?
