I am new to this site and hope to be locating a lost recipe of my youth.  My grandmother and her daughter used to bake “oblaten” which is different than the thing circular shaped Czech or Vienna type.  This cookie was made of condensed sugar, butter and perhaps cream and flavoring between multi-layers of wafer, which was then pressed for several days.  My memory is of my Swabian grandmother (this is kind of a cross between German & Hungarian) placing the layered wafers between two wooden cutting boards wrapped in linen towels and “weighted” with the iron!  Anyone know this version of oblaten?

Hi Katherine,
There was a discussion of oblaten a while back. Here is the link.


There is an expired youtube link in that thread. Here is a new one about oblaten made in the US.

If I may summarize.
Oblaten are delightful wafers made commercially in Europe.
Oblaten are used to make a large variety of regional desserts.
Post us a picture of what you make so we can ooh and ahh. smile
