Wafers at ice cream parlors

What are the flaky wafers served with ice cream? Round, flat, and separated into wedges. 

Can they be made at home?

You will find it easier to make them if you have a press.  Then you can stack them with frosting or glazes between.

Look up pizelle, krumkake or cookie irons on Amazon.  I just checked but didn't see any that made 4 triangles.  If round is OK there are several options.  We've used our pizelle irons for decades to make Dutch siroop waffles (caramel-filled wafers).  Despite my many cookie books I don't have a recipe for ice cream wafers, but should be easy to find online.  Good luck!

As said-pizelles,etc. They require a special iron-kind of like a waffle iron but with flatter irons on it. The dough is simple and can be found easily-just google "ice cream cone recipe" and pick from the options.

Same with the iron.
