    Love the recipe for the cream cheese wafers. Can’t wait to try them. My M.I.L. used to make them sandwich style and he wafer had fork pricks. They melted in your mouth. I’m hoping there are similar. I’m also looking for a recipe for lady fingers or clothespin cookies. I used to make these but lost the recipe. Thanks for sharing.
