These golden puff pastry ovals, sandwiched together with various flavors of buttercream, are also known as Parisian Tongues—a name, no doubt, that has to do with their long oval shape. Parisian waffles are a good illustration of the principle that one should not judge a book by its cover. Though rather plain and humble-looking, they have a wonderful crisp texture and unusual taste, and they are somewhat of a novelty today among showier and fancier pastry selections.
