Ostia

A traditional wafer cookie almost as thin as paper, from the Molise region of Italy.

These delicate wafers can be cut, decorated, used to line pans for baking (panforte, for example). Right out of the iron, they're hot and pliable, and can easily be trimmed with kitchen shears, and shaped into bowls or cones for any type of filling.

The traditional recipe has a neutral taste, and has many adaptations to thicken or sweeten it, and also to include fillings right in the wafer. Many delicacies, such as Brigidini, are made with this iron.
