These are perfect for filling! The not so sweet cookie allows for any kind. We use nutella and then dip half and half in white and chocolate almond bark for the holidays. Thanks it is a wonderful recipe!

My hubby loves the Origional wafer cookies, so I gave this a try. There just wasn't much flavor. It called for 1 cup sugar (total), but I'd add more sugar. I'm sorry, and I just hate to give it one star, but I know I won't be making it again. Perhaps if the author would try adding more sugar it would be better. Thanks for the effort.
