I gave a recipe to a friend that lives in North Carolina. The recipe calls for chocolate wafer cookies. She wasn’t able to find that in the States. Does anyone know what would be an equivalent she could use? It is for a Pumpkin Tiramisu. You dip the plain chocolate wafers in a vanilla syrup and they are layered between a pumpkin spice/cream cheese/whipping cream mixture. (She’s not a big baker so making her own is not really an option)

I made these and they worked very well:

Oh, sorry, just noticed you said she wasn’t a baker.  The rough equivalent is a product by Nabisco which is intended for the purpose you describe:

thanks for the info. I will send the recipe to my friend. I doubt that she will make them but I will definitely try the recipe.
The Nabisco product in the Washington Post article is exactly what we use here for the recipe but just like the person who wrote the article,  my friend hasn’t been able to find that product in the USA either.

I used them about a year ago, so they still exist.  You might suggest to your friend to ask a store employee, because they sometimes are not kept with the cookies.  The recipe I gave, by the way, makes a much better cookie.  I used them as crust on a cheesecake and people just thought they were wonderful.

Can you use the chocolate wafer that is the outside part of an Oreo?

As I understand it, NABISCO only makes their Famous Chocolate Wafers for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.  Stock up now; they freeze well.

Hi - I just happened to see your post: Try Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers - they are great, very thin about 2.5”. I use them for pie crust sometimes.
