You're welcome !
That's as close to the version from 1719 as you'll get.
(It was invented earlier, but first written down in 1719).

I forgot to mention : Cut the wafer paper so that a thin edge of the dough
stays free of it (to press the outer dough roll onto).

Plus : If you substitute the cassis jam with a sweeter jam (like apricot),
use less powdered sugar .

Just make sure that you get the thin one. There's a thicker version for
decorative baking.
