Smart Cookie

Nostalgic for your mom's ice cream pie with a chocolate crumb crust? Her key ingredient was Famous Chocolate Wafers, a crave-worthy cookie that deserves a spot in your pantry. The dark brown, not-too-sweet cookies have been the basis for simple, easy no-bake desserts since 1924, and they are still worth seeking out. Sample their chocolate crunch and get inspired to create a recipe or two of your own.

Quick Ideas

  • Crumble cookies in a glass and layer with sweetened whipped cream and mashed raspberries.
