"This recipe comes from my favorite cookbook from a church. It is simple, easy, inexpensive and delicious! Not to mention it tastes better than the vanilla wafers you can buy at the store! You can make the cookies bigger if you'd like, they just won't have as crispy of an outside. We like to add a slice of banana between two cookies, dip them in chocolate, and then freeze them (;"

I forgot to add the oven temperature! I am so sorry! The temp is 350 just as you thought!
This recipe does not include an oven temperature. I baked mine at 350 and they turned out alright. They spread quite a bit more than I expected.
My husband was craving Vanilla wafers! They were alomst $5 a box I thought no way I'm going to look a recipe, and here you were!! Thank you, cookies turned out great, better than "Nilla's".... perfect recipe..
These were perfect for me and are quite good but I don't eat the commercial version so I can't really compare to that. They started to overbrown on the edges after 9-10 min but I needed most of them for crumbs in another recipe so I left them in to make sure they were crunchy. I did start chilling my pan in the fridge between batches and that helped the browning. I put the dough in a baggie and clipped off a corner to squeeze dollops on the cookie sheet which worked very good. I also used the last little bit to make a snowman by spacing the dollops about 1/2 to 3/4 inch a apart :)
I was right in the middle of making my Dad's favorite Banana pudding (for Father's Day) when I realized I forgot to buy the Nilla Wafers at the store! So I googled homemade ones and found this recipe. Was thrilled that I could whip up my own homemade version and will be able to complete my dessert this morning without another run to the store! :) Thank you!
i made these lastnight added half a tsp of rasberry extract awsome!!!!by the way didnt hae butter used margerine they turned out chewy mmmmmmm
These cookies are very good. The recipe is essentially a sugar cookie. I added an extra tsp of vanilla extract because yum. :) I did make them a bit too big, but that was my own fault because I didn't read the '1 tsp at a time' and tried to guess instead.
Anyways, so excited to know that I can make my OWN vanilla wafers using REAL ingredients. Thanks for the great recipe.
Great recipe. They only took 7 1/2 - 8 minutes in my oven and were perfect with golden edges. Yum!
