My Scandinavian Mother would make a similar wafer but she rolled the dough to about 1/8th inch, then cut it with a 2 inch, round cutter; very light and crispy. She would then make a course paste of dates and walnuts. After the wafers cooled, we would spread the date mixture onto one wafer, then top it with another. The recepie has been lost and I've not been able to find another. Can anyone share this recipe?
