Gaufrettes Amusantes are traditional French waffle wafers that have adapted a humorous twist on their cookies. Written in either standard French or in Northern France’s Picard dialect each cookie reflects a witty, working class community. Everyday sayings such as “Allo Cherie” (hello darling) and “Cha n’vaut pas un pet d’lapin” (it’s not worth a rabbit fart) add a touch of charm to morning tea or dessert.

The recipe developed by Comptoir des Flandres dates back to 1894 and comes in vanilla, chocolate, chicory, hazelnut and raspberry varieties. via coolhunter
