“The range of what we think and is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice there is little we can do to change until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.”

My Grandmother’s Homemade Wafers

n

It’s been years since I’ve had these wafers in my mouth or on my mind … until these ready-made wafers caught my eye in the supermarket. I spoke to my grandmother and asked her how she made these into delicious wafers. The recipe is simple but a far cry from health food … but so delicious. These images are here for my grandmother to see what happened after we spoke.

As instructed I tossed everything into the pot and cooked into into a thick paste.

As I poured on the first layer onto the wafer I realized (actually Andreea realized first) there was nowhere near enough to create 3 or 4 layers.

Indeed it was enough for only two layers.

So I cut the spread wafers in two and piled them one on top of the other and covered them with another half-wafer.

I then wrapped it all in tin-foil and put some weight on it for half a day.

Then this evening, as I was making us a herbal tea I unwrapped the package and this is what I found.

I cut them up like I remember my grandmother used to.

… and voila 🙂

delicious 🙂

Update: Recipe

  • 150 grams of ground nuts & peanuts
  • 3/4 cup of honey
  • 200 grams of margarine (I used butter)
  • 1 spoon of Cocoa
  • 1 spoon of Rum baking essence.

All cooked together for 10-15 minutes and then spread on the wafers 🙂
