Ah, I must explain myself.  The "few bites" was in reference to @ElsieD's query and only applied to the ice cream sandwiches.

Whew. I was beginning to worry that you had some health issue or other!  Or perhaps far too much will-power for your own good.

It’s spiced wafer season again!  The (otherwise hideous) Acme Market, has them @  2 for $5. I harvested a few boxes. 

 

I still have two boxes left over from last year.  They were on sale.

Last year I bought several packages of these from Walmart (online).  

Now they're only available in-store....but not where I live.    Sigh.

 

I don't know how they compare to the commercial version but the recipe that @Anna N linked to upthread in this post makes an excellent cookie that I bet would be just the thing to enjoy along with your homemade peach ice cream!

I have a box of Sweetzels in the pantry (courtesy of Acme Market), ate about half of a sleeve over the past couple of days. I keep thinking that the tub-o-cheesecake filling might be pretty damn good to dip them in. Although I've never eaten that product, so maybe it's really foul and processed tasting and I'm setting myself up for disappointment (the dream is better than the reality).

Cream cheese or cheddar is nice with them

Spiced wafers.....are they like a gingersnap?

 

Yes, but to my taste, milder.

 

Edit:  Checking the website, Sweetzels also makes ginger snaps.  The difference is that their ginger snaps contain "ginger" while their spiced wafers contain "spices".  Never having had the ginger snaps, I'd suspect the spiced wafers are also crisper.

Do you still have/know the source?

 

Here you go. clickety

 

Originally from Yankee Kitchen Ninja. I think the thread originally referred to Ivins Spiced Wafers, and that's what I googled and found these. Easy and good, but I don't cook them as brown and crisp as recommended; I like them chewier.

Shoot!  Saw these in the Wildwood Acme and Rio Grande Shoprite but hadn't read this thread yet.  I adore gingersnaps … homemade from my great-grandmother's recipe(soft) or from a bag to dunk in coffee or crush up to thicken my sauerbraten gravy.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.
